Beneath the Surface

I can feel I have an idea that wants to be birthed into a cloth garment.  But I am reflecting in a still sort of way - not looking at it directly, but allowing it to unfold in it's own time and trusting that it will.
So, unlike this log, I am not stuck, but gestating.  And I am following my inclinations to do a bit of this and that.
Like this miniature shirt front made from various indigo-dipped fibres and fabrics.  A fantasy figment that takes me a step closer.  Because I sense that what I am wanting to do is still a bit beyond me.
And I finally dipped this stitched cotton that has been sitting waiting for weeks.  I was surprised that I did not have to do a thing except stir my vat and it was ready to go.  
I'm also putting my first indigo swatches to good use as edging on a jacket I made last fall.  Some indigos are up on the design wall, too - wanting to form into a shirt.  But first I will finish stitching the jacket.
