and still maintain a normal life

and still maintain a normal life, wax batik on cotton, hand stitch on wool flannel, 2010 I've made many pieces over my long career that show though metaphor how we each have two sides. A side we present to the world and a much more interesting 'inside'. This piece, however, is an attempt to just show our inner world. That too is a duality.

This piece is about our time, and being in it. One half is slow, but it seems fast. It seems a whirl. When joined together, the two halves make a whirlwind.

Please visit the World of Threads Weekly Interviews on my side bar or click here to read and view my interview with Dawne Rudman and Gareth Bate. It's beautiful and I am very honoured to be included.

My life is a whirlwind right now.


  1. I enjoyed reading your interview!

  2. extraordinary piece... I read through the last few posts as well... trying to catch up a little after my move... the leaf pieces are wonderful too... so nice to come here and visit... sigh...

  3. Mom, your life is often a whirlwind, yet you always exude serenity. Great interview!

  4. Congratulations on the interview. You are well-spoken, as usual.

  5. Does this piece stand by itself?

    Thank you for your visit and the comment in my blog. It encourages me...
