stitching in car again

We had a road trip over the weekend to deliver my art work and visit two of Ned's cousins, both named Tony. These fields were in the Hockley valley, north of Guelph. I stitched. Highway 69 is being widened. There are new rock cuts, trees have been cut down, made into piles of wood chips. This is the back.

all very beautiful - I really like the similarities between the photos from the road and the patterns, textures and shadows created by your stitches on the cloth. The large steady spin of the spiral - representing travel of all kinds. It is always inspiring to see what you are working on!

Oh such fine stitching and I noticed, too, how the photos seem to reflect some of the designs from the stitching.

I always feel badly when I wee trees being cut down to widen a road or accommodate new construction.

This post made me smile :) Those long stretches of Northern Ontario highways make for good stitching time! :)

it is really something this resonance between outside the car and inside the car... your quilting and pairing of images actually made me see the scarred landscape as beautiful.
