trustworthy circles

this circle, 
cut from one end,
 lands on linen,
claudia's sleeve, in fact,
and looks to be at home. 
 she called them trustworthy,
these circles,
which makes me wonder.
 and now my stitching,
 cutting, and mending
during this flu
horrendous though it is
has something to be,
to lean into, to become.
trustworthy.

Great use of your time while you are sick. Beautiful stitches, like rain. Feel better soon.

beautiful tiny stitches, looks like they are holding down the circles - keeping them from floating away. hope each day is a little bit better.

The perfect combination of circles and lines, light and dark, solid and void. This piece is a delight to observe in its making and exudes warmth and yes, trust...

Best to you in the battle with the flu - we had a nasty one that floored us late last year - No. Fun. At. All!
