I finished another of the projects from a class at Art and Soul in Portland. It really is square-just my lack of skill on photographing. The class was a great one from Ruth Chandler on Boro-Japanese mending.
The background is Indigo dyed by Ruth and the patches are scraps from Kimono. Everything was saved by the people and used to mend clothing that was passed down through the generations as money was scarce. The stitching is all running stitch.
