Some cloth, and I meant to say reversible patchwork
Still fiddling with the focus and color settings on this camera. Just testing getting to some little things laying around. And the heat fan went on in the middle of it, but whatever. Here I am. I think I fixed the suggested videos at the end on YouTube to show only the ones on my channel, but hey, we'll see. Things have a way of undoing themselves.
And then some News
It is apparent that this is my new place. And now, after a bit of trying this and that, reality sets in. There are issues of my own making, mostly because I was a bit too ambitious about what I might do here on WordPress. The help here has been excellent so I feel it can all be ok. So ok. A bit of undoing and redoing. This site will be down now and then. But we have all become used to the seesaw after all this time.
Mulling it over...
This is what happened. I like the little details that were added. Eyes are important for me. I use them more and more. They are windows, and I can never get enough of them.
I love how they bridge in and out. Filters between what we see and what we believe.
They seem to represent clarity, but they are tricksters. The more you have, the easier it is to understand that. So as symbols I would rather use them as a growing desire for a broader perspective. And a deep understanding of distortion. I will add some fringe before closing the bottom here.
The shibori on the front and the tie dye patch on the back, from Richard Carbin. He is listed in my resource page, friends mostly.
yup, just right , the colours and eyes speak to me and help over my stalling in work. thanks Jude
Stalled is just time to reconsider. The true work…😎
btw: Buffalo Springfield “What’s that sound” video LOL
Of course anything of Spring and Vision is all right up my alley! Hmm…Deb’s “Green Man” comment! Oooooo…. (I gotta get a grip; I have WAY too much going on–yeesh)
Love how the mending of the velvet brought a new direction—
I have the fever.
The growth that occurs when seeing through fresh or new eyes perhaps. 😊
Perhaps they depend on each other
Love the little eyes, and how they go with all the tiny details of early spring. Brown shifts to green and sky wobbles from gray to blue and back. I’m going to go check my garlic!
Today is a shift day.
My follow up is all you 🙂
Love that fresh green of spring. Outside and on your cloth
Yes, this feels like Spring. The velvet is grass, so pretty, and a corner of blue sky..
It’s so spring here today, wow.
The 3-inch patch is my Goldilocks “just right” size. Thankfully I’m getting more comfortable making those 1-inch patches which are perfect components. Seems you’ve just created some magic there.
3″ is great. I like how the 1″ divides that space.
for me, this creative process of something not turning out as expected, considering the new possibilities, and moving thru’ one of them to discover an even better solution, is a beautiful metaphor for life itself. seeing-eye pathwork. thank u, jude. x
A pathwork, and just going. Its just enough these days.🌞
Here comes the green man. 🙂 P.S. the follow up videos…3 were yours and one was Pearl Jam. I always wonder if we all see the same follow up videos or if everyone gets a different mix?
Ha, well I do like pear jam, I mean pearl jam ( like pear jam too!…)
I wonder too.
laughing…yes, I like both too. 🙂
This cracked me up! 😀 tee hee hee hahaha
Hey Deb, I got all Jude and then this one:
Fine by me! I love this Little Bird song and it’s also perfect for Spring! Plus, one that came up the other day, I enjoyed enough to use in my own post. Ain’t life grand?!
Jude…that velvet is just the best, as is this whole lil story strip. xo
Small, bigger other things going on 😎
Ah that’s funny Nancy. I have that album and sing that song with the children all the time. 🙂
I love her sweetness and innocence of days gone by. Well, that how she makes me feel. Those felt wings and birdies on a stick are the best!
Vine like eyes 💚
Vines can get very tangled…
Eyes on new leaves like a baby’s eyes opening for the first time. Brings to mind the idea that whatever we look at in nature is looking back at us.
Yes, being there…hellooo! As if to say, see me, see my nature.
in this configuration the eyes remind me of ring-tailed lemurs. love the feel of spring in all this.
Oh, great! They do!
(((Jude))) what a beautiful resolve, love your combination of texture, line and stitch!
I love how that seam kept pulling apart, asking for more attention. I can so relate.
just like that it’s growing. there are little green spears poking through here, just a few, eager to see what they are!
Yes, the l8ne has been crossed here. Garlic up!
