This is what I have been working on this week.  This is where I left it Friday.

I have been working in these blues and blue-grays for several months now.  I have been looking at lots of textiles, old and new and am so attracted to these blues.

The shades of indigo/cerulean/ultramarine/pthalo found in traditional Japanese textiles is a palette I could explore forever I think.

Then there are the indigos that are so saturated they are almost black.
