For some reason life has told me to work and not play this week. So there is not much progress to report on my Work this Wednesday. I worked, and Mola took a holiday.
The areas I have worked on are marked with a red arrow.
Mola - Snippets of Interest
Molas are made to be worn, (as you know they form the panel part of the blouse worn by Cuna Indian women of San Blas Islands in Central America) so there are not many 'antique' molas to be found. The oldest Molas were made 150 - 170 years ago.
Some Molas have embroidery to enhance the design, but the really valuable ones are made in reverse appliqué only, have more than five layers and near invisible stitches.
