Beads

today i stitched my way
through a block
on a piece i started
a while ago.
it was going well,
at first,
then i didn’t know
where to go next
so i laid it down.

but my hands
are so smart.
they pick up the cloth
and before you can say “thread,”
it is singing to me softly,
telling me
stories
of all it
represents.

stitching
slows me down,
gives me space.
it amazes
and amuses me.

    I am SO intrigued by this – I want to hear those stories & I want to watch your hands as they work their smartness! Oh, AND I want to see more of this piece, watch it as it changes.

      isn’t creativity fascinating, karen? i am having so much fun watching it unfold, listening to his whisper to me. i’ll continue to share as it unfolds. are you doing any clothwork now? working with cloth gives me the spaciousness. in so many ways.
