The written dates are the expiration dates of our milk bottles.
The white painted lines in-between the stitching mark how many bottles of milk were purchased that day. If we bought one bottle there's white below the day. If we bought a second bottle, there's white to the left of the day, and if we bought three, there's white to the right of the day.
Last week, I added white fabric in the empty squares in the Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday columns, the expiration days of the milk company we commonly buy our milk from.
This week, I added white dotted lines to connect when we actually purchased the milk and what the expiration date was.
I think the dotted lines are not only helping to explain this project, but design-wise, the gridded "calendar" is now becoming more of an abstract design.
After being pretty uncertain about where this was going, I really like how it's finally taking shape now. Not to rush the end of 2017 too soon, I am looking forward to adding more as we need more milk.
