Nest of Days
I could go back, but just to say, a long time in process.
I decided to add a binding. Suddenly, like in the middle of the night. Woke up, I needed the edge. Containment.
Binding doesn't really mean I am finished.
It is often a way to help me give context. To create a timeframe. A new way to look.
A kind of holding is what it is. I used the Hug. ( the video should pop up if you hover over the word Hug) Here, a two inch strip, folded in half, hugging the edge. This gives me a one inch ish border. I stitched a quilted line about 1/2 in. And then decided to turn the edge under instead of leaving it ragged.
The thing was, it became too much like the box I often put myself in so I decided somewhere along the way to insert some escape points. A little something liquid, to break the barrier. Just in case. To Feel Free.
Really LOVE the simplicity of this one !!!
(how about 77 years . . . me, soon 🙂 !)
Such a rich conversation which gives me a lot of food for thought, on bindings, beliefs, hugs, containers, going deeper rather than bigger, unfinished is fine (and then), escape points, done. ❤️❤️❤️ happy spring y’all!
conversation is a kind of seed scattering…
48 & raining here. I’ve always liked your “hug” idea, a wrapping around the two sides with cloth arms. Once started writing a book of beginnings… a list of opening lines.
That could be a big book!
It got lost.
Liked your meaning of “again”…. Another chance..
Your glossary is a real joy, Jude. Something to mull over , every time…
How to Never Be Done…..that’s perfect :):):)
Just a funny aside…here , the word ‘Done’ colloquially is sometimes said in a light hearted way, as Dun-dunna-dun!! It’s got a ring to it. ..How never to be dun- dunna- dunn, sounds good too.:)
The break out of the barrier you created feels so right. A kind of breath.
Like Mo’s DunMovin…
Never done, I like that 💙
Tryin’ to match us, huh?
Enjoy your days, nesting.
Just seems to be tha way it goes
It is supposed to warm up here too.
Sometimes things are only “done” when I give them away…but, then I remember many a ‘story starter’ cloth I’ve given away, inviting the recipient to add to it in their own way…but then did they?
Now I’m thinking why do we get stuck on completion? Like there is a prize for finishing, when even a life is not ‘completed’…it ends when the person passes on.
Okay, so you said ‘deeper’ haha 🤣
Maybe just when we can’t go on…
Not everything connecting….escape for the spirits…American Indian pottery. I love that.
spirit cloth then!
I’m really wanting that book, Jude😊
I’ll never finish it, oh ha!
bindings. i don’t have any bindings on Any thing…incl my mind….
and what might it feel like?, to give my mind a binding…even
for a day? a plan. the binding would be
Emrie’s favorite phrase now….”in real life” … a binding of follow through
thanks for some context
I don’t like the word, but it is familiar in quilting.
It could probably be like a kind of protection in that case, that which keeps something from unravelling, disappearing, “intact” perhaps.
But , now that you mention it, our minds are bindings in a way, holding a thought for a moment. until poof, gone again.
But what about beliefs?, they bind…
I really like the concept of not bigger but deeper. I may have to hang that as a reminder in my workspace.
a deeper basket…
I love hug and the escapes. My favourite kind of hugs.
44F and light rain here in SW BC
The warm up is just crazy here.
I love that “ish” is in your glossary.
I need it so often
do things we make finish, finish themselves, or something else? the more complex and layered i make things, the more they can be done, redone or undone.
A natural order…
The hovering hug!
Hey, happy spring!
lol how to never be done
but sometimes we don’t want things to end
but they don’t they just change…
Your cloth …it all looks so rich and soft. Escape points are good…just in case..and it allows for fresh air! Is it your birthday, Jude? I guess every day is a new day!
i love that liquid pattern.
No it is just a warm day, but yes a new day.
Wow, 77! That’s going to confuse all the plants….
Just finished the third panel for my insomnia blanket this morning and started connecting the panels…will be putting an edge on next. And then…? 🙂
and maybe in the 80s next week, geez. and then?
Happy! Birth! Day! ❤️🐣❤️
not my birthday, just a warm day.
instead of “the end” the words “and then …”
