the passage of time is embedded

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Saturday Sunday

The process IS the object.
The time it took. The space it occupies.

"We often look for the underlying meaning of things, when the thing itself is the meaning." Anni Albers

  6. Today, I just had a discussion with my secondary school art students about the process and how important it is. They don't agree with me at all, they don't understand the aim of it and, of course, they hate being assessed about it.

  10. many thoughtful stitches... a thing of beauty.
    The title of this post is such a wonderful name for this piece. I often wonder what happened in someones life while they were stitching a cloth, a quilt .... the thoughts that are stitched into the cloth, reminders.
