at the bottom of the bottom drawer

shibori,surface design, dyeing

Found this te suji and midori shibori. It was one of my first shiboris, i was young and thought there was a lot of life ahead, but i was not patient.

In the middle of the pleating and binding session i got bored and changed the pleating thus getting another pattern. The patterns are called 手筋絞り te suji kin toshi shibori( 手 te means hand and suji pleated) and みどり midori which means in this case willow leaf. I was getting started on the indigo craze, but i wasn't getting anything there, so this is good ol' Procion MX blue on white silk 90 x 90 cms.

On another note i finally got down to using my new bike. There's such a nice verb in Spanish for when you use something for the first time estrenar. Funny how English being so precise a language does not have a verb for that.

  4. I agree, they are beautiful! Good you went to the bottom of your drawer.
    BTW, French has the same word as estrenar: étrenner. And the word is étrennes (I think it is always plural). That is the gift you make at the start of the year.

  6. I also would not categorize this as the bottom of your drawer, but cream of the crop! I adore the design and both the pleating styles, especially the second which I find breathtaking. I wish I had the patience, but I hardly hand stitch choosing a sewing machine instead, let alone the will to sit down and produce something like that!
