During my time in El Vado, I focused on sewing self portraits with black thread, embroidering colcha designs and continuing on my collection of plant fiber for paper making. I found fields of milkweed that were giving off whitish silvery fluff. I collected a couple bags of the fiber and I plan on using a recipe I have in Albuquerque to make paper that I will incorporate into a larger project.
