Some things are inevitable...
that includes my lighter side...
of course, based on what came to mind, I will have to cut or perhaps unweave because I don't want to waste any magic thread.
The 1" puzzle pieces, well those I always have on hand. I talked about preparing them here:
Puzzle pieces, well part of the patchwords I use.
And weaving puzzle pieces , well I did talk about that here:
This talking, not so much on the lighter side. And it is time to continue.
It's a really nice day again, so I just did a little doodling. Sometimes that is enough to give something a life while you are wandering, gathering thoughts and perhaps sticks to light an evening fire because it will be needed later. light
There are so many ways to build a fire.
You are such a wonderful human being and artist.. creative an always generous.. ❤️Thankyou
well I have been know to be a bitch but I do try to be generous if I can.
thinking about how many unique 1″ or 2″ square weavings could be woven on the same warped loom. perhaps 1 a day. then on a particularly fine morning, cut apart, fringes intact. followed by the joy of dip dyeing the fringes in a rainbow of colors. then appliqued as patches, or hung from a branch as a mobile in a garden… ooooooooH!
“There are so many ways to build a fire” Wow, these words struck me, thinking about their wider context, to burn, renewal, cleanse, new beginnings, germination etc can all start with a fire. How words can be fire too. Always so appreciative of you and how you view the world Jude, Thank You.
Building and fire, it’s like making and unmaking in one form.
Well, isn’t this dandy! How refreshing Jude 🙂
Jude love the beasts changing form too
hopefully we all evolve
Yeah, no stage is useless.
I thought probably that was one of Deb’s pieces. The randomness of her dyed fabrics is so distinctive, which probably means it isn’t random at all. One thing is for sure, nothing goes to waste when she is dying threads. And I love your smiling cat and the moon.
I think she has s sense of random wildness.
I really like the idea of weaving a three inch x one inch strip and using it in a nine-patch. And – the lighter side. Thanks for the reminder to wander there.
A different kind of puzzle piece…
OMG i love how your mind works. I think you are my spirit animal. this is simply amazing. have a great day
Ha! A travelling companion!!!
It’s lovely to hear your voice and to see you create such wonderful compositions. I have learned so much from you, thanks for sharing.
I hope I can keep going!!!
Lighting fires is so important ….
sometimes it’s the keeping them going that’s more important still.
that’s the art!
The mischievous face is great! 💙
Your weaving 💙💙💙
I feel wildly free this morning.
Framing a square of cloth as it’s becoming a patch. Framing a situation by where we position our perception. Appreciate so much the interweaving of thoughts and making. Gosh. So rich.
I like looking at the weaving as a core of something
I like your lightness and wandering. Your process inspires as it
is much the same way I work
I think it is present in everyone but we suppress it.
This morning the cat looks like it’s wearing a mask like an astronaut or diver. Play is so important…for lots of reasons. 🙂
I saw it like a bubble…like it might lift off so yes in a way…
there is no real planned agenda in play yet it has tremendous usefulness.
it builds knowledge
Space is important, big or small, in everything.
Love the idea of weave integrated in the ninepatch, so much food for thought, lately, Jude.
Thank you! 💕
I dropped the ball a bit on weave but I am ready to ride the next wave
Really enjoying your work. I don’t work in textiles, but I am so interested.
thank you for this space.
it can be anything really, the just going… thank you for stopping by.
