I am trying to improve the crescent shape in the Earth Ark panel. I've been procrastinating about this, but no more. Click here to see what it used to look like. I started by removing the darker gold outline. I encourage myself. Textile art is just as tentative as drawing or painting. If I'm not happy with something, I take it out and start again. Just like in a drawing you would erase, or in a painting, you would paint something a different colour. If I couch white linen damask around the circle's perimeter, I think everything will improve. Jay and his fiancee were here for the weekend, and put in a few stitches. Erika (above) is the 80th person to work on these quilts. Our son, Jay, is the 81st. There are large gestures. There are small marks.
The process is slow, but it seems fast. It seems a whirl.
Each decision we make creates who we are.
Some are big decisions, others are daily and repetitive.
