These pictures and text were cut and pasted from my old blog. Click to enlarge. A post from around this time last year as I floundered around trying to hold myself together, focused on larger cloth. Now, I'm circling. This is one of my methods for reconsideration.
Today I am going to create a project page for GROW. To gather it's story. Because I am back in it. Maybe it's the season.
Yesterday, this happened.
What if everything can be explained by everything else?
Centered. 🙂 That’s what came to mind.
Yes! Grow palette is lovely. I love how you put things together in a way I would never think of! My mind is spinning along with Grow. Does it help you to work on a round table? To see it growing in a way that a square is more static to work on? Just wondering. Maybe I need a round table – that is what I am thinking!
I like a round table. And this one is glass. It a 42″ glass round, the man used some old leftover 4 x 4s and 2x4s to make a frame with legs. I’ll take a picture… A round glass table is just great, easy to turn the cloth and the needle just glides through the cloth and slides easily from the glass back up. I find it just swell to work like this and soul-o just loves the tent it makes.
This looks just right, a wonderful addition. But, I always feel that way…then you make a change and I think that one is just right too 🙂
Anything can be right!
Love the bigger circle of the table in the cloth 🙂
Why does our work have to be explained? Can it not just BE.?
yes it can, why not?
And just to explain, ha!, my work is a story, and telling it is the way it forms.
Crazy wonderful how that little patch of squares sets the whole thing spinning!
Thinking about trying to square things up over here today.
it did, right? the squares became a circle.
I’m thinking about square-ish.
A mandala with attitude! Beautiful.
it is kind of feisty
love how your extended 9 patch has become a centreing device creating a new sense of direction
it is working, I’m spinning!
So beautiful and calming.
Beautiful with your nine in the center💙 Stories continuing!
I am so pleased by this…
Perhaps the Only way anything can be explained is by everything else!
Thich Nhat Hanh’s wonderful word InterBeing comes to mind.
Yes, like that but in the context of my book challenge, it takes another turn. I meant to talk today but the Man here was sleeping so happily. He is a night owl.
the interconnectiveness of all things never ceases to amaze!!!
I am very inspired by this picture of Grow.
I think I hear my needle whispering my name……
it is life, it keeps us alive, I hear your needle humming.
The nine grew! Looks great. I love how you’ve rotated the centerpiece so it’s pointing in a new direction.
I call that the coma effect and well, let me jot that down so I can explain it in detail
I continue to be inspired by how you place colors … it’s not as easy as you make it appear
It is a logical system based on leaning. And that is something I have yet to successfully explain, bit I am working on it.
I’m always intrigued about what grows at your house. I think whatever we make there is always a small piece of us that goes with it. I am so happy you are moving forward with your book.
it cannot be without us so I think it is a big part of it. always moving forward, sometimes without end, oh ha!
Good Morning! I love seeing your photos…the little snipits of your comfortable and comforting spaces both inside and out. I’m looking forward to seeing how you use the GROW palette before you. Be well.
I love that, the grow pallette, that works so well as an idea generator.
“grow palette”!! such a great term.
