The Language of Maths

Zero, zip, zilch, nought, nil, nothing. These are all words that could describe the progress (or lack thereof) I have made on my maths quilt so far.

I rather rashly thought I might do some more shibori and resist dyeing for the maths challenge. I like to experiment before getting into the real thing. This photo demonstrates my pathetic results. For the top piece, I applied a commercial resist medium to form various mathematical symbols - not that you can decipher anything. For the bottom piece, I tied up some pebbles tightly in cloth - really. Plan B beckons.
