Waiting

Today I unpicked the smocking stitches from this piece of silk. They had been there, not quite finished, for a week or two. It remembers them in little waves. When the dyeing turns out serendipitously lovely like it did here it can be hard to do the colours justice with the embroidery. Some things just need time to hatch.
