Happy Halloween, Day of the Dead, and Mercury Retrograde ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰

They say that when Mercury is in retrograde, technology and communications go awry. So why not keep in old school and give Morse code a try?

…or not and maybe just enjoy this dashy-dotty Morse quilt instead

 

The Morse quilt is a bit of a collaboration. On my last trip, I stitched up four of these lil patchwork quilts from my newly acquired stash of hand block-printed fabric. Then I passed them on to Kunvarben, an expert embroiderer/general wizard with a needle and thread, to do the finishing details — stuffing, top stitching, and tassels, all by hand.  

 

Whenever I’m in Kutch, I can’t get enough of all the beautiful ajrakh (block print) fabric…I’m such a sucker for that indigo!

More soon, stay tuned.
