a little stitching

on claudia's sleeve
 couldn't keep the line straight
 it ran off and became a landscape
 and then kept undulating
 and then exposed a watcher
a very unhappy, silent watcher

oh, i don't know if it's unhappy - it reminds me a little bit of the beginning of the little prince: what's under the hat? cheers velma, been away too long.

I like the wandering stitch... but I'm a bit clueless about the watcher.

ronnie said...

i 'see' the watchful gaze..... hee hee hee very spooky!

Valerianna said...

Oh, I DO see the watcher, looks like Kali!

Oh I see the watcher, and more than one, pensive, brooding, perhaps unhappy...one might be a cat and then who can know what a cat's thinking.

Lynn said...

Took me a bit to find the watcher, but then!!

Beautiful to follow the dyed lines with stitches and waiting what emerges ... ;-)

The movements in the earth, they're not as we'd always have them be. Even the unhappy movements need to go somewhere, not just be told to shut-up.
Your stitching, Velma, were you a Venetian dressmaker in a former life?

I see the watcher! Great that you took the line for a walk.

So nice the white stitches on the brown.
I didn't see it at first either - but yikes! I do now.

faisal, what a sweet thing to suggest! i actually sewed most of my wardrobe (less the jeans and t shirts) when i was a teen.
robyn, yes!
susan, yikes is right!
