Finished

I finished the stitching on Monumental Simplicity. I am folding it up. Putting it away for a bit. I've also just finished three novels. These endings give me a space for new beginnings. "What Tolstoy achieves by his exploration of detail is a completely solid material framework ...whatever he is talking about is made intimate." Joel Carmichael, one of many translators of Anna Karenina.

"Whatever Tolstoy's art is, we are unconscious of it."

all those stitches, how wonderfully beautiful

Judy Martin said...

the novels were:

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Swann's Way by Marcel Proust
Room by Emma Donoghue

and thanks for the compliment re: all those stitches. Now I just have to listen to the piece to see what to do next, if anything.

nice!

i try to keep everything i do intimate. from writing to photos to meals and quilts.

at the end of it our conversation with a viewer is private.

that's an important word to always keep in mind.
