A Square of Chaotic Stitching
I've done a slight bit of studio reorganization in the last couple days, since I added some corkboard to my "pin up" area, which until now has been a not-nearly-big-enough magnetic board. I uncoverd this little stitched piece that I did a couple of years ago from under the menagerie of stuff attached precariously to that magnetic board. I looked at it again as if meeting it for the first time! It reminded me that, although I badly want a sewing machine for some aspects of my work, there is nothing quite like the mark made by one's own hand....the hand-drawn irregularity of it all cannot be duplicated by the machine. Once this little piece tells me it's name, I'll post it in my shop.
I'm looking forward to a break from the routine...we're going to Omaha to the museum, to the zoo and to the gardens this weekend...not to mention eating at interesting restaurants. What fun! Have a great weekend!
