not to know but to go on


I stitch this piece every day. I use one complete skein of embroidery floss and scraps of cloth that I find in my basket.

It's about time, but not about the week or the season. It's more about the whirl of it all, the unending wonder of each day, the task of making time tangible.

  2. I would love to be able to hold it, it must feel amazing, looks amazing especially the woven illusion (though that seems the wrong word).

  9. Both your words and the piece are beautiful. At first I thought it was woven, a rag rug. Wonderful!

  16. Each piece is about 15 inches by 24 inches.

    I plan to keep working on the pieces for at least one year.

    So far, I have 4 completed - and am well into the 5th.

    I began this on July 10. Each piece of fabric covers a two week time period (aproximately).

    I have been invited to show this piece in a solo exhibition in 2012.
    The curator is assuming that it will take the whole gallery space.

    It's good to have this affirmation. It keeps me motivated to continue.
