in the home stretch . . . well actually, sliding into third base is more like it

as i stitch, i wonder what nancy’s thinking as she draws.
what she’s trying to say.

i marvel at how most of her drawings are one stroke.
she puts the pen to the paper
and doesn’t pick it up till she’s finished
with that particular drawing.
the “x” tells me which side is the top.

i have 37 of the 271 drawings left to stitch
on In Our Own Language 3.
if i stitch 4 drawings a day, i’ll be starting on the border before the end of the month.
join me in a squeal of excited anticipation?

miss luna moth came to visit my studio last week.
thank goodness she stayed on the other side of the glass
cause you know: moths and cloths don’t exactly go together like a horse and carriage.
but then i guess that depends on whether you’re asking me or the moth.

susan lenz, one of the most prolific artists i know,
tagged me in her blog post today. go here
to read more about her process and what she’s currently up to
(she really does turn the proverbial sow’s ear into a silk purse.)
and stop back by next monday when i’ll answer the questions
about process and productivity.

    That big beautiful moth won’t hurt your clothes – it’s the tiny beige ones, or rather, their larvae, that do the damage. I’ve seen a lot of it … and them …

      Well, that’s a relief Margaret. Except I’m sorry you are the voice of experience. Hope they didn’t do too much damage.

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
