The Woven Wishing Star is on the studio floor. I made it a while back. Started it during my Contemporary Boro 1 Workshop aka 21st Century Rags) Back in 2011. Has it been that long? I find myself asking that question a lot lately. Anyway, I will be detailing the way I got this far soon. But today, just there on the floor. The woven part is about 20" square-ish, give or take, and it has been anchored to a piece of thin cotton that measures about 30" square. Ish. My measuring is never that exact. That thin cloth was dyed in a natural indigo vat, a weak vat, and it has nice light turquoise cast which happens sometimes. I placed the whole thing on a larger piece just to photo it for now.
There are 3 main techniques here, cloth weaving, fields of stitch and mosaic . I will review them soon. The star is not indigo, which probably I regret for this project (which I am now calling the Endless Wishing Cloth, conjured here) but with using what's on hand, first and foremost in my mind, that is the way it will go.
For all of you celebrating a holiday this weekend, this can be a little holiday cloth for now and I Wish you all the best with family and friends. .
I don't do Easter, or Passover. But I will celebrate cloth. And I'll be cooking up some new ideas...
