What is real time?
This stitch journal makes time visible, marking each day with a complete skein of embroidery floss. It has been steady stitching since July 2010, nearly three years so far.
But I stitched them in March.
I let eyelet stitching absorb me during the winter and my journal project fell behind.
But it's OK, because these new panels document a different kind of time.
Moving my hands, holding the fabric, repeating the stitch, I was able to let go of ordinary time. Let go of worries of daily life and instead kept each present moment of sun in this journal.
I think it is the power of touch.
