reflections on reflections..

It is quiet

It takes a little while to be aware of this….

As soon as I settle to stitch, my mind takes off, fills the space..

It is the sounds that bring me back to be in the moment

To still and calm, to focus

Sounds of stitching on paper, through layers

There is a crackly sound to handling it unlike soft cloth

I want to be attentive – around in the depth of the work, not half stitching, half there

Another definition of ‘there and not there’!

The sound of the needle piercing the paper, the scratch of the thimble, the pulling through of thread

These gentle rhythmic sounds bring my mind to rest where it needs to be…
