Catching what moves through


A sense of through-ness


I made one other change.

I cut two slits right out side the nine patch base.

To bring the magic ends through to the front.

I thought it gave more of a sense of through...

This also "extends"  the nine.

That thought/ idea is still in my mind.

A thought might just be easily imagined as a kind of thread.  Right?

Audio - What runs through

In general

I am sticking with  the three day a week posting.   Trying to be in between too much and too little.  But still having a framework for show and tell.  Trying to get through it.

I put Part 2. Puzzle Pieces,  in the  Shop,   I will release it  for sale over the weekend.   For those of you here, if you want to continue,   I offer a 10 dollar discount...  use the  code  ragmate at checkout.  If you prefer alternative  methods for payment, read here.

Part 2 will start July 1. Hopefully.

Spell check has stopped working in y editor here at WordPress.  Sorry, typos coming.


  1. The thread tale was mesmerizing. Love how you came to at the end, wondering where you’d wandered off to! The second audio was just the everything in a nutshell, along with the playing you do, which is why your pieces have the authenticity they do. Hope I made sense.

    You use the word magic a lot. Can you clarify your meaning of the word magic? And why does black and white refer to magic.
    I am just amazed at the way you can take funky scraps of cloth and can create such beautiful art.

        I was away for a few days and totally skipped that post by mistake. Thanks for directing me to it. It really helped my understanding of your thoughts. BTW I am enjoying you sharing your thoughts on how you come up with your direction.

        Years ago I was in an appliqué group with many women and one older lady was new to quilting but not new to sewing. She would always change the project she was working on. Her saying was, “ Make it your own.” She didn’t like objects floating around a block, she added land, and many other embellishments. Watching her work on projects was so freeing. She learned that from someone else along her way and shared it with us….a great lesson learned, free to be you.

just share what moves through you...
