maybe this month

(scroll down to earlier posts for the paper-cuts)

this is a new piece - just finished. it is white on white embroidery on niddah examination cloths, that are sewn together with red thread. Each square is embroidered with the text 'maybe this month'

(click on image to enlarge)

there are 15 squares to correspond to the 15 examinations that a woman does to herself in the week leading up to going to the mikveh.
