Here's an update on my indigo square:
I haven't been working on this much during the summer. The couched denim didn't go with the background fabric as well as I thought it would, and so my motivation to work on it dwindled. Actually, my motivation to do anything got pretty low. I'm not sure exactly how or why, but I feel like I've been grumpier than I ought to have been.
I picked up the indigo square again and started filling in the gaps. Stitching it feels less creative,but I am liking the filled in areas. When I started it, I had hoped it would be done by last weekend. At the moment I feel good to just be working on it again.
