ah the porosity of being a woman, I want to gently touch that red velvet cross
This feels so true ... even not being able to physically touch the stitches on this whole/hole cloth. And I am left wondering where the pieces have gone/will go ...
I did use them Liz and edited the post to show how those wool sequins were added to top and bottom edges.
Thank you for that ... they are truly metaphorical, and surely each person who views the whole will read their own story into it
Oh my goodness, that is the amazing , breath taking, piece of work!! I am in awe, completely and utterly! Please tell me that that took about ten years to complete!
Linda Sue, it took a lifetime to find the courage. xo
Your writing, your work with cloth and thread - it is another kind of breathing.
Oh my goodness Judy - this is an amazingly beautiful treasure!! I love the 'peepholes' in this wonder and what an inspired decision to add the missing piecesto the bottom and top edges. It would be wonderful to actually stand close and see the stitching and movement.
thank you for saying these things. this is a blanket found in a thrift shop, with mended areasand then I over dyed itand then I looked at itand then I made the vulva shapeand I felt so vulnerable the whole timeI had to cut holesxo
You bring us into your world which turns into my world too!What a new circle of life!!
Thank you for taking the time to connect. Much appreciated.xx
