new work..

Scale – after finishing the first small concentrated cornerstone piece I feel a need to explore expansive stitching again, using the same stitch – chain stitch, which for me, in my language of stitches, holds references to connections between us – the interconnectedness.

The size is slightly more within my reach this time for ease of working. Time for a deeper wider breath – looking out, up, around and through.

Some woad dyed silk organza from an exhausted dye pot Рmottled and randomly marked Рfine and delicate and with the quality of transparency allowing for shadow-work stitching.

Keeping on..

Sunrise yesterday..


Stitching.. one chain at a time. I feel excited to see how this will work as a cornerstone – but there can be no rush, no rapid completion. It is, by its nature, a slow stitch and a slowly developing process emerging gradually, gently.

This work requires strong clear light and the days are short so I like needing to make time to stitch.


Sunset – breathtaking … taking time within a smaller circle of natural rhythm
