It has been a while since I wrote a post. Our trip to Malta was great but, as ever, the travelling caught up with me. If only I could go to sleep in my hotel bed and wake the next morning in my own bed. Now that would be an 'app' worth having.
Nat forwarded me a photograph that she took while we were shopping in Tokyo, in a shop filled with vintage fabrics. Also in the picture are our sensei, Bryan, and my indigo sister, Janine. The staff there described us as the "Western Ladies Bomb" and had a lot of tidying up to do once we'd finished our shopping spree. The photo reminded me that I have not shared my shopping in Japan with you and so I shall organise that for my next post.
I also have to share our visit to the Indigo Master, one of the most amazing days of the Japanese Textile Study Tour. I have just seen on Bryan's blog that he is planning some indigo workshops in the Autumn. Do have a look, I highly recommend them. Here's the link: Autumn 2012 Japanese Indigo Workshop and you will find all the details and costs there. Just staying at Bryan's farmhouse is a wonderful experience, the workshops themselves will be fantastic.
I am starting to be able to organise my creative thoughts post-Japan. More about that in a while.
PS If you're waiting for my Maltese eco-dyeing it will be a little while longer. I took a peek and it was very pale and sort of wishy-washy so I've given it another steam and set it aside for a while longer....I need to learn patience.
