catching thoughts…

Catching thoughts…. the buttonhole stitched wheels seem to represent thoughts with a trailing line connecting them…

IMG_2569bIMG_2571It is an early morning practice – like meditation… I observe, I notice, I stitch with a gentle rhythm until, as in meditation and breath work, my concentration drifts away and cannot be held longer… I find the work on cloth remains with me all day, peeping through into my mind…

IMG_2578I journal too – another way of noticing what comes into my mind – it is quickly noted – no refining! And I photograph – the lens providing a dilated view – a deeper look to connect with.

There is a whole sketchbook to share – of buttonhole making, of reflection.. this just seemed like the place to start!

See this Brunel Broderer post for another view of where the work is!!

  1. Hi there. I am wondering if this is the same Susie whose Aunt Rosemary lives in Mason’s Point, NS. If it is, I hope you are well!

    The stitch work is beautiful.

    Kind regards,
