Months ago I posted the sketch for this.
It is finally tacked together and ready to join the dance.
I am taking my time to compose it all as well as I can.
There is much looking, then stitching, and looking again.
The rythym is like breathing.

I have begun to revisit some unfinished work, pieces started in jude's class a couple of years ago.
Explorations of weave, stitch and dye.
I prefer the look of hand stitching with the shibori so finishing these is taking some time.
Thickets are a theme in this one
Slowly tracing bare branches
I'm giving it a few stitches each day as the trees outside fill with leaves.

Expanding Focus

 Begining close up
Pulling back, seeing more
 Finding larger shapes
 Looking outward again
