i found the saint verde digest through karyn's blog, and immediately spent too much of my work time pouring over it. beautiful photos and a great range of things are covered
i loved this post of patchwork, and the decay and wear on the garments made me think of work i was doing as an undergrad, a lot of burnout print paste and layers of cloth - something that has been sitting in the back of my mind for a little while now.
it also reminded me of this tutorial on sashiko on the Purl Bee i'd bookmarked way back in january, when i thought i'd have a bit of time to explore a new technique. it uses the same type of embroidery that i've been using on my garments, a simple running stitch.
