Nearly

Lethe is almost complete. It just needs the border – the boundary – to be stitched:

I decided on a very simple, narrow border made from the frayed edge of the backing turned over on itself.
I hope to have better photos of this after the end of the weekend. It’s still dark here most days, and it’s been too wet and/or windy to take pictures outside. In the meantime, I have a couple of small details:


I am still thinking about what I want to say about this, and I expect the words will come easier once the boundary has been secured. It has been an interesting and, at times, unsettling piece to work on, cutting and tearing away many layers and highlighting the gaps with stitches.
