Work in Progress: Boro Skirt

January 26, 2012
Over the holidays we took all the kidlets down south for an absolutely fabulous week at Disneyworld.
That’s a good 20 hours of total driving time and I consider it time will spent. I’m very fortunate that Mr. Almost Perfect likes to drive and I don’t get carsick so there is a lot of nice open time for hand work.

I’ve decided to cover all of the raw seam allowances on the outside of the skirt with hand stitching. There are still a number of seams left to go – and then I’ll consider it wearable AND washable. I don’t think it will ever be “done” because I can think of a million things to add to it. A canvas in progress. A stitched journal. Art in motion. A continual “to-go” project.
If you would like to listen in – Rice Freeman-Zachary and I talked and giggled about this project, among other things on her podcast: Notes from the Voodo Cafe.

Rice (rhymes with “Lisa”) is talented, funny, and articulate. If you have a few minutes it’s worth the time.

And…. day two of Artspark’s

    Your stitching looks great on your skirt. I love the pockets. Is that tatting on one of the seams? I think I already said this, but in case I didn't – I loved your interview with Rice. Wishing you a creative and fun filled weekend.
