a bright blue cotton dress revisited (work in progress 2009)

A friend of mine gave me this dress form and a big box of blue and green surging thread. I looked at the thread cones and wondered how I could turn these cones of thread into a material that I could use to make art. I separated the cones by color and took inventory. Five cones of bright blue sat off by themselves on the table... and I thought “five strands into one... yeah, I can do something with that” , then my eyes traveled to the dress form and I knew what I would do. I will make a dress.

The first step is crocheting, and that is where I am now.
