I proceeded to nearly cover the whole of this with other fabrics I've dyed and pieces that I've partially stitched, but I'm not at the stage yet where everything has found its place. This piece is going to be called 'Palace of the Soul' and I feel excited and know I will be spending alot of time with it.

Something was really brewing inside me yesterday. I went into the studio vaguely thinking I might do more handstitch or begin a gift but nope, that snow dyed piece I had previously unpicked didn't want to be put away and suddenly some hand pieced blocks declared they would be the perfect partners for it - on a large piece. So I played along and prepared a size and shape that felt right. I was curious as to when exactly did I do the snow dyeing, so I went back in my journals and discovered that I had made the first of these blocks the same day - and had an intention to make a larger piece. Well, at least my psyche remembered!
