Like Braille

Rod's words feel amazing on Mo's satin, front ...


and back ...


Although I need to clarify that the back shown here will actually be the front upon which the cloth shreds will hang ...


while Rod's lyrics to I dream of a world will be entirely readable from the back ...


A double A-side, if you will.

I did stitch a few more shreds, too. A bit of Ulrike (Nemo Ignorat) cloth ...


more Deb Lacativa cloth ...


And this pair, stitched on indigo-dyed cloth gifted by Hazel at Handstories ...

Mo - I can't wait for you to feel the words under your fingers

I envy Mo because she will get to hold and admire your work eventually. I remember how stunned I was to receive your Hearts for Charleston square... you are doing it again -- deep, heartfelt thought and feeling rendered into symbol and prayer with thread and cloth! love it.

PS did you find the silk hard to stitch through?

Dee - I envied you in turn getting to see and touch all the Hearts for Charleston cloths. As for the satin, I was wondering if it would resist the needle, but it has been quite kind to my fingers.

Tactile is healing and soothing. I can "imagine" how those threads feel as you meld yourself into each stitch.

Sue - stitch is my solace
