Yesterday... it was a moon. Today it became a sun. What if that makes it both?
I'm splitting hairs.... splitting hairs
It's raining. And I need it. Sun. And I am thinking about sun. And I went back to look at some old sun storming.
Sun-storming from Sun Moon Stars warmth, sunrise/sunset, daytime, sundial, radiance, center, rays, yellow, sunshine makes me happy, what's new under the sun, solar energy, shadow, sky, life, constant
I'm focused on the Center aspect and then I was thinking how center is not always a middle but a balancing point. And how that is true of composition as well, in my head.
And storming is not always words.
And why am I so interested in image?
Because more than often there are no words.
Yet. Each is a seed for the other. Seeds.
A rainy day is a good day for considering sun. Off I go then.
The moon and the sun ring of fire eclipse
nature steers us
Every time I visit, you gift me seeds (ideas)….Wheeeee!! 😀
Thank you!! oxoxoxox
Beautiful colours…. and combination of colours and lots of eye-catching areas. I love looking at the weaves and the stitching. Thanks for sharing all this with us.
the weaves teach me
A single thread of embroidery floss – I was so reluctant to try it. I think I thought it wouldn’t show up (although I can clearly see that it does in your work). Once I tried it, I had to admit it was magical. And it takes forever. Still not quite accepting the time it takes, I’m still in a rush…but I’m getting slower!
it’s swell to be in it, like being the thread that weaves a cloth. You get to know the thread and what it might become.
…on my shoulders…
We are head towards “triple digits” (as all of the forecasters say)…too much sun? Mmmm?
yes I am watching the heat build out there, and the water drying up.
Looks like 🌘 eclipse over the ☀️ so both .
We all have dual personalities like it or not hiw much it is worked so it is both the ying yang.bright like a shining look at me🌟🌞 come on over chat me up 🥳.
Other hide in plain 👀🌚.
Let me be as l go throughout my day doing what l to get going or done .
Brainstorming… just thought about the second half of that word for the first time reading your post… storming, ha, because, indeed, the storms bring forth the seeds?
and I love a good storm
Here in France you have also sown your seeds. Seeds of beauty and silence. Thank you Jude.
thank you back!
Just discovered your split stitch……….love it, thanks
We are all sun, rain, and the magic that makes us be.
After what seems like months we are finally get some light rain! Yay!
light rain is really great
(((Jude))) this one has me singing Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden!
Really love that idea about center, just step over a bit…. We are swinging back and forth between sunshine and rain, often in the same day. My favorite kind of weather, although it makes the grass grow really fast. P.S. I see the recipe.
I’m almost watching the grass grow
I have begun to use my sketchbooks much more often as I trod along with you all these years….having a sketch to look back at even when the stitching has taken off on a life of its own, does provide some inspiration. Love split stitch! I could just go on for hours with it and the results are so often a surprise.
I love to replant old seeds.
As a teenager, I used to have split ends, and if I was tired, I’d sit and split them right up the shaft…so bad for the hair 😉 I much prefer your version…and I have loved this stitch since you first introduced me to it so many years ago. It was such an important moment.
After three days of mostly thick mist and/or rain we have brilliant sunshine today 🙌🌞 Sending some over to you 🌞
I feel it.
Rain feeds the seeds
Today I will be rain.
Love seeing the sketches … ideas percolating. 😊
Always in there somewhere.
