a soft lobelia rain

summer lobs2

the thrifty missy here who cannot bear to throw away the leftover indigo  pigment sediment keeps painting it on whatever she finds.( what a mouthful of a sentence!)
i pounded some lobelias and bougainvillea petals, but these did not print red. or maybe they did but the red got lost on the indigo.
indigo is such a curious thing.i keep hearing the japanese who say it is a living wonder its apprenticeship takes at least 9 years. and that is to be merely functional!
cotton batiste is a nice fabric to work with i am discovering.

 the threading keeps going on. my intention is to finish today before the hot weather hits.we'll see how it goes.
and this is very inspiring.
