The tree. I made one before, a while back. I had suddenly thought of its form as a grounded cloud. Or a path from earth to sky.
I have a lot of loose dyed patches here and I think my favorite approach is to play with them. They are very comforting in a way. The way they remind me how one thing might become another. The building of course, the connections. but also how they might be intended as one thing and then transformed by just asking what if? .
Always takes me back to childhood somehow. A no worry, wonder what will happen thing. So there was one tree and then another and thoughts about making a forest. And then living there. And I am actually. Living there. Here, and maybe that is why it came so easily.
I use Fold and Stitch mostly, mostly not working from a pattern but from a thought. More spontaneous and full of pleasant surprises. Also makes you think about how it might work. A good skill. Everything constructive that we do is a kind of building. Or rebuilding. Patchwork, in perspective.
There is talk of an atmospheric river here tomorrow. I worry, we are so saturated. Trees may fall. Hoping for no wind.
