right here, right now

In between baking pies, changing sheets and many conversations, I've been piecing small components for 'precious water', the third panel of the circle project. Large paper templates help estimate how many one-patches are needed in each colour way.








We exist right here,
right now,
to complete our life's work.

Yes, it is all we have, right now!

Are the lines on the squares done in french knots?? These panels have been an amazing project to watch emerge.
