A Deeper Place I have been in this Frame of Mind, working on this one for a long slow while. And slow rose up in my mind this morning, as a word, as a a concept, as the buzzword. Maybe slow is not about speed. Many times things catch on because they are easy, or they are an excuse rather than an idea. Like ragged edge, boro, turns into an excuse not to turn the edge rather than the many […]
Early this morning. A photo. Just finished stitching the last square. New seasons are upon us. I wonder how they will become for us. Heal. A quilt on the wall is one thing, but up close you are in it somehow. And that is what it is for. How joyously soft this seems to me now, like once upon a time when nine was not even a memory. A field of loose puzzle pieces. Once upon a time when there […]
Just Nine 3″ squares. Because I spent most of rainy yesterday replenishing my basket of puzzle pieces. I do this mostly when I feel puzzled. No plan really. Just the potential for a solution. Maybe just a nine patch. And then, I pressed them to a big cloth, Heal, just to look at them. You know how cloth sticks to cloth sometimes, like a felt board. I liked them there and now they are pinned. Because they started to fall […]
Woven in Space Place There is more here than I might be able to explain, but it is just nice to look at I think. Anyway, in my mind, this one has suddenly become important. A new Frame of Mind. This was yesterday’s post but I never got around to publishing it.
Yesterday’s self was upside down. Today’s self is neither here nor there. This is just an old moonfaced beast base that needed to continue and I just stitched slowly and let it go bit by bit with no goal. In the spirit of becoming, the process was just about how it might go, and bearing witness. Just in between. The instability of form is on my mind. And then, all the work here that might be become a base once […]
It’ greener than green here. Rains everyday. Hardly an hour goes by without, at least, a sprinkle. The porch roof need to be replaced. It is rotted through. Big job because part of the regular roof will need to be replaced as well to make it work. The inspector, when I bought this house was a liar. The sale was contingent on porch roof repair. They sent us the receipt for the work and inspected again. What is wrong with […]
