a few more

 stitches
 now 
on paper
 dyed lokta
 on disheveled 
bleached abaca
 some little lines
dashes and dashes
 some knots or not
on that linen sleeve.
the paper is a page from a book of thoughts.
the cloth has yet
to become its own story.
a long way still to go.

reminds me of my old drawing teacher who said to draw as if my pen were ants crawling along the surfaces of whatever i was drawing. love that you do this work after "work"!

aimee, your teacher had a great thought; and i love that i can do it this year!
h., the food/eating analogies abound
jean, it sounds so different, too, especially paper on paper

Those stitches and that fabric! What a delight they both are. Isn't the running stitch a joy to do? Meditative, soothing...

your stitches and colour echo the season - slowly turning back to the earth.

Velma Bolyard said...

jennifer, for me, it's maybe the walking stitch
india, walking away as fast as the appendages allow
henrietta, yes, before emptying into white

neki, yes, the two are wonderful in juxtaposition.
