I hope that you don't mind another circle project update. I have to keep rational thinking out of it and work beyond the fear of the extraordinary time or energy required. Last Thursday we took our tables and chairs and stitched out doors. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun. In between the Thursday group sessions, I work on the project by myself six hours a day. In progress is 'mended earth', my nickname for the second of four meditation panels that will eventually be installed in the local church. Usually I put in three hours of hand piecing on the horizontal foundations and a fourth hour at the machine making the string fabric.
Then at the church I enjoy two hours of quiet hand quilting on the earth ark panel nearly every day.
There is work worth taking the time to create.
It raises questions about being that are difficult to articulate.
What does it mean to be alive?
Does anything we do matter?
