This one, the Nest of Days, has two integrated sides.
I even just like the thought of that. That they are very very different but they work together in their general purpose, to be a blanket. Each side retains a form of it's own. Each relying on the other (see Back to Back Patchwork) for support, now on many unspoken levels. When I look through the cloth, I find the secrets of the partnership. And many paths to new Form. integration
There was just a lot of quilting.
Done is not really a thing. It is an illusion. I have some help. Soul-o reminds me, things have many lives. Simply time to rest in it maybe. Form is temporary. Things are always changing.
Through... this morning.
I officially gifted this to myself today. Gave myself a Nest of Days.
Jude, your thoughts expressed no doubt inspires…but love the way you take such big thoughts and processes and bring them into living form which then shifts form yet again.
It allows me the room to let some of my own seeing, find pathways and expression on the ground which reflects life as I see it.
That’s a big one!:):)
Wonderful. And that last photo, stunning, and evidence of how everything can be everything.
yeah. I am stuck there for the moment.
The depth and darkness of the first photo has me wanting to curl up and sleep and the last photo, with the light is a beautiful morning wake up call. Love this cloth so much and that you gifted it to yourself 🙂
I though to make it bigger, bed size, but it just said quilt me. It helps me now with my weaving path.
all this, love…
i watch the Spirals hanging there on the walnut sheet every day…
How will it go together??? what will be the Other Side?
I will watch and wonder with you .
So much woven-ness here with the woven rug, fabric, thread stitching, quilt. Delicate strength.
that woven piece is a very rustic pillow cover I bought in a small rural shop , the first trip to Turkey. I am seeing it with new eyes, maybe weaving past and present.
Your blue’s and full moons are sweets for my soul!
Is the full moon made out of one piece? The effect you reached with the quilting it makes it look like several small pieces, how wonderful!!!
yes, one piece of old cotton dish towel, the quilting of the front has transformed it into a patchwork, right?
New meaning to the phrase, “I have your back.” 🙂 Love the last image. Sunny here today too, maybe a record high.
Yes, the holing in sides instead of division.
We moved a bit back here, the garden is a bit on hold. Except lettuce!!!
Yes! Fantastic, what a beautiful approach, you created more magic!!!🌝 I love how you play and thank you for sharing with us!
how light becomes woven into the cloth, revealing both sides as one. lovely hearing your voice this morning, jude, as your thoughts become woven into ours…
It was important to me today, to realize my interest in form had moved more toward structure.
This post warmed my heart on this rainy, chilly day. It would be a pleasure to curl up with such a quilt like this today.
it’s been cold and drizzly, I wove these slow dark days together with great ease.
I have been working on pieces not done. Two of them will hang in my newly resurrected greenhouse.
Oh, the light could come through there, and maybe some fading!
It’s pretty shady in there. Just some morning light on one side. I don’t mind some fading. We too fade with time.
fading is just perfect!
Beautiful Jude 💙
It’s good to treat yourself
Integrated, woven together, One Thing.
Kinda like all of us.
a big concept, integrate.
oh that indigo blue has blown my mind today!! and the light coming through. that’s what I love about old blankets/quilts the empty spots perhaps to fill with thoughts.
it’s a kind of space, thinness.
Things not ever really being done is one of the most important things I’ve learned from you. It’s a form of permission.
Me, too, Dee! Me too…it’s ok to be ragged/not done.
and a form in itself. It becomes done as a convenience I think , for many reasons.
Missed you, Jude. Yes! The Secrets of a (successful) Partnership. A blending together, each with its own-ness, and still One.
I feel like I’d like to slide into a life like yours in the next few years Jude – it looks like not perfect but with acceptance at its core. And some grace.
I am indeed sliding into acceptance, I’m sure it will become a bigger challenge at one point. A lot of what we see of people’s lives is “photoshopped”. Wishful thinking maybe, ha! But really I have enough, what more is there to want?
