This past week I was drawn to play with some of my indigo pieces. I wasn’t sure where they were going, but I thought I’d follow the muse. And since my word for this year is completion, I was excited to go for the ride.
I started by cutting up some pieces for a wall hanging. The white pieces are also indigo dyed pieces that just didn’t get much dye. They worked perfect for what I was planning for this project.
Then I was off to find a quote I wanted to stencil on this wall hanging, and then cut the stencil. But while I’m waiting for that idea to gel, I started cutting small and came up with these two collages.
As I’m progressing on the wallhanging, I continued on my ideas for the small collages. I grabbed a canvas, painted it with Lumiere Indigo and printed out some words.
And here are my results. So happy to use up some of my fabric.
And the wall hanging. After taking the picture this morning I think it needs another bird or two and I will be stitching around the border. But it’s almost done.
I absolutely love this quote. Here is a closeup.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. What about you? As always thanks for dropping by.
Great job! I love that quote too. It’s so true.

This is absolutely beautiful! And I love the quote.
Have you ever tried poke berries? Not sure they would give you a true color or not, but they definitely do stain bluish-purple.
Hey Mari, Nope, never used poke berries. That’s a whole different way to dye. Of course lot of poke here. Maybe I’ll try it this year. Thanks for dropping by. I’ll be working on your project next. Love you, Sis
