There SHE is, unfinished, after all these years.
The cloth I call Spin, well, I don't like it much as is. Actually I think that is natural to the poetry of process. It is done when you are at peace with it. It's on the wall because a lot of looking helps me , motivates me to make the changes for peace. She needs some work, but don't we all? Time for another layer.
She seems to be listening to the river. Created from some of that beautiful shibori ribbon by Glennis. Here, in indigo. Just like a river, I have always loved it so.
I love this post and I love the conversation following. I am always amazed at the beauty and complexity of your work.
Thank you, loving is a comfort.
I am glad that SHE can listen to the river… good way to spend time. 🙂
all is well with her…
So glad you mentioned Glennis ribbons. I have a package somewhere that I’ve yet to use. Must find it and use it in my next quilt which will be blues.
I used a lot of what I had on the magic feather cloth. They are beautiful.
I feel sad for her. She looks abandoned and afraid to me. For her I speak mercy.
She will eventually, hopefully, if there is time, contain it all…
(((Jude))) love seeing her “just going” for another Spin!
“make the changes for peace”…so simple, yet filled with truth.
it is the ultimate goal.
oh, wooooooOW!!! her hair appears as the softest moonlight. magic feathers sprouting from her crown. hand-woven face. fiber woman!…
I was working from a model, an old garden sculpture, now I must work on her in a different way.
…done when at peace with it….
It couldn’t have been said better or more truer.
That’s the only way I can explain it.
Smiling to see her again.
been a while…
‘She’ is gorgeous!
but she needs work
“Though she be but little, she is mighty.”
funny how she can stare me down
Not liking something is a lovely motivator. The man changes, the river changes, but maybe when we meet we can both grow a bit. Or adapt sympathetically with one another.
I don’t always like the idea of things being finished; it doesn’t mean death, but it does mean the end of growth. If I can call it conditionally done, I can go back and grow with it a bit.
I feel like being done is a momentary thing. If it is a gift or if it is sold, I think of it as done. But if things stick around, I often look with new eyes, and I am different and it is different and so we go on.
looking long here too and seeing, after a long time, up close,
closer, farther back, closer, looking,
ending up seeing you…the maker….seeing a person whose whole life
is Cloth making. A truly truly Amazing Cloth
almost a whole life, I hope…
She is looking amazing 💙
I missed her
Wow. A powerful woman. Like the River that flows by her.
she has history
I’m listening too, water soothes my Soul
gonna be a dry summer, soaking it up
