Yesterday, Liz, she mentioned Design Mending. I responded and then suddenly listened to myself, saying it has all become that. And yes, I truly feel that. Which goes back to my feelings about thingness and form. It is all moving. I source my energy from that. …after some stitching. The dots/circles look a bit like bubbles. I did not intend whales. Just life flow. But now they are there. …after some folding just to remove the house from view. Maybe […]
I think I need a drone… I will take a photo outside when I get a chance, right now, a small ice storm. The Grow cloth, becoming bigger. I decided to do that first. With what is on hand here. It is good to be using some of the larger pieces of cloth here. Using them. I am using what I call seamless piecing here. I will probably talk more about that later. Anyway, about 12″ bigger all around should […]
I love how, in it’s undoing, it holds the scraps of another’s undoing. And how that might build something unknowable but has a sense of appearing. Form.

How it holds together and falls apart while you look. I […]
Humid, way hot, yet turning. The light begins to seep through the tired foliage. We are opening to autumn. I am back to the circle that I drew on Grow, tracing the edge of the round glass table it sits on. Maybe it just defined my current reach. Now red, like a ring of fire.
My hands, clasped. In case it isn’t immediately obvious. When we get up close, things transform. The change in perspective always interests me. Especially when you seem to lose what you are used to as the big picture. I took this picture to explain the stitches I took (skitch skatch) , this time to integrate the surprising yellow cloth with the silk self base. Whether or not I explain, a form results from what I might be thinking. In this […]
