silver water

Silver Water , indigo dyed linen, shibori markings, hand quilted twice, once with sewing thread and again with embroidery floss, 15 inches wide, 35 inches long
 It reminds me of the way the lake looks at night, with a full moon's shine.
 The reverse: procion dyed cotton lower section, procion dyed rayon top section, hand quilted with sewing thread and embroidery floss,  a cotton batt.
Tucks on both front and back.  Layered seams.  Two sides.
Gifted to daughter Grace in October 2012 to celebrate so many things.  Her great job, her new apartment, her engagement to Asan.

Made in 2012.  
Number eighty eight.

A cloth that does a fine job of commemorating, of celebrating. The size and shape conjure a sense of a scroll that heralds important things.

So simple, so elegant, so inspiring. Thanks for your beautiful work, Judy.

Grace lives in Manchester and we are visiting her this weekend. I am able to give her this face to face, with a hug. And see where she might place it in the new minimalist white walled flat.
