Indigo. work in progress (day two)

I love indigo and I love hand stitching. About 5 years ago, I first heard the word the Japanese art of sashiko, patching with white thread on blue cloth and I made this piece, that I attached to my levi jacket. I'm inspired again, after I bought a selection of indigo dyed fabrics and threads from Glennis Dolce at the Long Beach Quilt Festival.
Shown is day two of my current project with a detail here. I'm working intuitively, just placing the fabric as I go, layering and stitching. It's got a long way to go, and I'll keep you posted!
