Samples 2016: Week 19, Topography/Indigo

I love indigo - the magical transformation of the dyeing process as well as the colour itself. So I've got plenty of threads and fabric that I've indigo-dyed myself in the back garden.

Used together, the effect is too subtle really - there are several different threads here but you can hardly tell. On old wool blanket that I felted in the washing machine before dyeing.

"Topography" suggested contours to me, so I just doodled in running stitch along those lines (!).
