Sometimes, I ask myself, do I feel that time is LOST when I use so much of it to stitch?  Or, do I think that time is saved?  Answer:  When I am lucky enough to spend an entire day with stitching, I never feel that time has been lost.

Time is my main material.

Shown: the back of Cross My Heart when I just started it.  The front is a grid of overdyed linen squares layered on a piece of dyed velvet.
I remember debating about which side I preferred.   The finished front here.

this Other Side....has so much
to float and breathe

is a perfect image for me of we think it's all the Front, but
the Back is maybe where it's At
and also always There too...we can go there

Life goes so fast around us that taking Time to sew,make stitches may seem like luxury.
I sometimes have to fight a little culpability........but start again the n'est day!!!!!

thank you for these comments.

This piece brings back so many memories, especially when I look at the back. So much was happening around me when I was starting this piece and the stitching holds that time.
