what’s the best picture?

The other day when we were dying with Indigo, we had a friend over to have fun with us.  Later on few more friends arrived and surprised to see the blue all around us and fabrics flying in every which way, we had all sorts of conversations and comments as we unfold and untied the pieces and the blue shapes and design started to show.

We also talked about what is the best way to take a picture with pieces like these.  I love hearing their thoughts on what seems simple ideas, and maybe a conversation that wouldn’t come up if we didn’t do projects like these, right?

Look at this other one I made.  How should we take the photo for this one?  I made this one!  I like it.

I enjoyed the tying, and the folding, and the thinking, the guessing, and the sinking in the green vat, and the magic when it turns blue and of course the untying to see what unfolds.  But the things I like the most from that day, are the comments and conversations and laughing and pride after all the work.

    I can’t wait to see your kids! Siena looks a lot like Mark in the top photo and Lucas could be Ossley’s older brother!
