Susi Bancroft cloud and knot2

Light as a cloud – delving for scrim I found some silk/cotton for a backing cloth for the prayer flags

Washed in lavender-soaped water and wafting on the line it was delicate, translucent and with such sensitivity to the slightest movement in the breeze… moved by a breath..

Torn into 3, seamed with an open back stitch and now french knots… I shall try wax on the scrap I kept back… an open mind

Susi Bancroft cloud and knot1I thought I had lost one of the 9 today – laid out on this cloth – and, turning to look yet again, there it was, floating on another – the consternation caused me to think what is embodied in these little pieces
