These bright spring days I am finding myself drawn to 'pockets'. What fun to take a batch of 'scraps' and put them together into the form of a pocket.
The idea of using embroidery to 'enhance' my stitching has been with me for several weeks. A pocket is the perfect place to stitch a little bit here and a little bit there.
Although the pocket has a definite form -- the way its made, what is used to make it -- makes it almost an abstract form. And that is exactly what I'm looking for these days.
"On the great canvas of time
We all create our own masterpiece.
Choreographing our steps across minutes and hours
Dancing over the days
Painting pictures over months and
Writing our stories on the years.
Singing our songs that echo across eons.
We are all a thread in the talent tapestry.
A snapshot in the cosmic, collective collage."
