hand-dyed, painted and stitched silk scarf

I made this for a co-worker.  Our annual gift exchange is this evening and, with the way things have been going around threadingwater acres, I didn’t even begin this project until last Sunday.

Deadlines.  My current best friend.  If only I could impose them upon myself, then one day you might get to see the kimono top I’ve been working on since summer; silk from Vietnam (thank you stepson), matched with hand-dyed, batiked rayon and hand-pieced with faggoting.

Don’t mind me.  Just rambling today.  Feel free to continue this dissociative thread in comments.
