Suddenly, it occurred to me...
Something was missing on the Bird Robe.
I notice the cloth is wearing. It's been used that much, even though still in process. I am always caught off guard by the beauty in that, the poetry of process. With cloth, the wearing out is part it. The journey. I was just thinking about that. This morning, in a different way.
What a fabulous robe, Jude! So lovely and I guess you could wear it inside-out. How many robes have you stitched over your life till now – they’d make a brilliant exhibition for textile lovers.
It has grown with you.
Yeah, we are sisters
Your nine to me now means ” I’m still here!”
I would love to feel this robe of yours! I wonder how long it would take to become more or all mend…the whole thing?!
I’m not so keen on seeing the worn and torn ageing, but I absolutely love seeing the reinforced, mended ageing spots.
i learn a lot bout cloth as it wears. it’s like a story unfolding. it helps me to know how to mend it.
When it is finally cool/cold again, I will work on my robe.
Still too warm/humid…
And now, after several weeks of dry weather; RAIN!!!
it’s just right here at the moment, cool but not cold, but BIG rain tomorrow and maybe BIG wind too.
why ? i suddenly thought of those Girl Scouct patches, the Sash
we wore with our earned patches stitched on,
yours would have a black/white nine patch
I have mine, but where is it?
what a world…i googled GS sash and badges…
there’s a site on ETSY for Alternative Scouting for Boys and
Girls Merit Badges : home dentistry curses and hexes violent revenge spirit medium mind control time travel invisibility plague immunity money laundering and
Grace, those are hysterical! I liked Invisibility and Plague Immunity! haha
I have mine, too. I wonder about taking a badge or two off and using elsewhere.
I remember I had a weaving badge
I might have mine too…somewhere!
I want to make a robe too ! The lining I am not clear on how to make that happen. This would be a great project for me. Instead of doing a blue quilt I will do a robe !
If you reply to my comment I never would know because I don’t remember where it is. Can I get an email when you comment, or do I have to get everyone’s comment ?
I think it is an all comments thing. Blogs are cumbersome, I know. I’ll look back to see what I have about linings.
Oh goody. I learned that the lining needs to be bigger than the outside across the shoulders and in the sleeves, but I’m not sure how.
well I just muddle through and add another layer, I have no idea about that
I believe after you post your comment at the bottom of the page it ask you if you’d like to be notified of other post.
Hope that’s helpful.
Yes. When I do that I get every comment sent to my email. I only want to get the one comment on my comment.
I love seeing the places showing wear in special clothes and cloths I have made. Finding beauty in process is truly that piece of time that continues to remind me of journey and show me the strength in mending and using again and again.
oooooH… soooooH true! especially love the ombre effect of cloth partially exposed to the sun over time. need to experiment with “sun shibori” to see how various cloths react over time… thank u, jude!
“the wearing out is part of it..the journey” – as in our lives as we age, maybe wearing out as we journey to the next phase for us…
wear and mend and learn how it goes, that’s it.
it’s so rewarding sometimes, just to wait and see…
your “nine” signature 🙂
There it is! It says I was here.
