an old project

I found this embroidery project that I probably started in the 80s.

thank goodness I made notations on what I had in mind!

it caught my eye recently -- it's the perfect sort of activity to help endure all the WAITING I'm undergoing. now I'll finally finish it!

the design goes on a rectangular piece of gingham. it'll become a huipil-style garment.
I'm pretty sure the motif came from architectural embellishments seen from the bus when I commuted from Pasadena to 8th + Los Angeles downtown LA.
