I've been quietly working on two pieces of stitching, both of which stem from my trip to Japan last year (how long ago that seems now). The boro cloth is made up of lots of sample pieces of the various techniques we learned with Bryan and the silk panel was dyed using material found at Fuji-san and is embroidered with threads given to me by my friends in Japan. They are both pieces full of memories and I am enjoying creating them. There is no rush, just a few stitches at a time. Today I hope to have the plaster cast removed from my foot and, if healing is progressing well, I shall be more mobile. The healing is like the stitching, a project, patience is required and I cannot be in a rush.
