Slowing down as fast as I can
My main focus this month is working on three of the four meditation panels of the Manitoulin Circle Project. I work on them all day if I can. I'd say I put in seven hours a day just on these panels. It's a grandiose project, maybe too large. It's been nearly two years since the first designs were made. (See here). "What do you mean, you work all day?" someone asked me yesterday. (Perhaps because this is not an employed job?) These kinds of comments cease to bug me. I love how I spend my time. In this post I am showing the progress of the second panel, Mended World. On good days, I go into the church hall and put in two hours worth of thread. I have help on Thursdays. every Thursday from 9 am to 6 pm - see side bar These hands helped last Thursday. This panel measures nearly 100 inches square - a bit larger than the first one. It's made almost entirely from donated or thrift shop linen table cloths plus some silk. I'm working so hard on Mended World because I can. I feel lucky to be able to do so.
