My post earlier this week was so revealing of my long-held tendency to focus on results rather than process. Since getting the message, I've slowed back down again, and perhaps newly.
For years I never had the time to do much more than graze the surface of some techniques. Now I've got all the time in the world. There's a lot I've wanted to explore with shibori...now I am. And my internal excitement is building.
I'm wrapping poles and doing a lot of hand stitching in preparation for dyeing later. My current focus is on manipulating fabric. That's it. Back to basics.
