Shred on ...

So it goes (on Deb Lacativa cloth) ...


word by word ...

mending our beautiful ...

shred by shred ...

broken world ...

thought by thought (rust "dyed" muslin) ...

stitch by stitch (shred destined to be replaced)

Hope held in cloth (a Clarissa Pinkola Estes quote on onion dyed muslin) ...

we were made for these times

daring to defy our current reality (indigo shibori) ...

I dream of a world ...

and believe that dreams could come true ...

where love is the answer

an answer to Mo's call (a Terry Tempest Williams quote on thimble flower dyed muslin) ...

Finding beauty in a broken world is creating beauty in the world we find

growing day by day ...

first off your project is stunning! I received my imagine peace pin today, Friday 13th, a good omen- I immediately ran my figures across the stitching and cloth- a connection thank you so much!

Mo - I am remembering how swiftly the Hearts for Charleston cloth flew from your hands

Susan - thank you and you're welcome!

Stephanie Jo - it pleases me that you should see them so

Liz..your piece is wonderful, original and reflects totally the theme of Mo's construct that will hold the pennants. Your work is pushing me beyond sketching and gathering pieces and I just began to stitch today. It is good to have some of the creators working out of the gate before the rest of the "crowd" as seeing the work truly gives a boost to those of us who spend much time pondering. Thanks for what has been a little push for me.

Loving all these words which are not just words - they are like breath.

Sue - as I stitch them I repeat each word over and over ... they become mantras
