Things are stacking up Again...I'll be dropping a few things in the shop here and there. I do not take reservations or commissions. Supplies are sold separately through the Threadcrumbs Shop. Link up top.
I was going to trace around it first so I could let it leave its mark. Be part of that. But I cut and forgot to do that first.
So ok I thought, I can remember, more or less. So let me mark it that way.
Below is a copy of the above photo with some digital drawing over it. I used to print the photos out and draw over them to test out my ideas. But these days, I save paper and especially ink because geez, that is such a rip off. And also I draw well, I am good with a pencil, but not so good with the mouse drawing, so I like the challenge that poses, makes my brain work harder.
The coma effect has taken hold. Recording the forgetting is good too, I forget more, as if I am in a coma sometimes. Maybe the coma effect is a premonition. You know what I mean? And I drew some really simple sun rays. Still in simple mode. Sun, center, rays. Less white lets the dark work better. My thoughts are switching to Night and Day. But I'll stitch these ideas in. See how it looks in thread.
A quiet day, creating some new components with the pomegranate walnut brew. Now cooked down twice.
#1 is a handwoven cotton linen, I wove the sample way back, and it was wrapped around a tin can using a circle cut from a red onion skin and not heated enough to get color from the onion except for the very edge. 2 and 3, silk, folded and wrapped around a tin can, using some waxy leaves from the euonymus bush(which never gives any color)cut into circles for a resist. 4, a bit of indigo over rambutan rind on silk.
Me too really. It's soft and warm here. I will wander off for a few days...go pick a pumpkin maybe.
Dream up an October Stray. Go visit my boy.
I dyed up 3 small bits.
Sorting through old scraps, one at a time, remembering, is so comforting to me.
I've scheduled a small update for ThreadCrumbs tomorrow. I can feel already, the demand rising over my head. The pace on my side is slowing. I'm planning to offer some personalized Story Packets in the near future...just thoughts really, the way I always begin...that I might put together and never get to. Maybe you might help me with that, use them as a beginning and let my thoughts move through you. See what happens. That is what I am imagining.
In order to spread the love, though, I am softly asking that you only purchase one in that particular category. Otherwise the idea will not work, vibrate outward. Thanks for that consideration. I am flattered and warmed by your enthusiastic support. As always. Beginning in November, some Threadcrumbs will be shipping outside of the USA. Details about shipping will be provided. BIG LOVE.
The dots. In constellations, indicate (or honor) a change in direction.
A system is kind of like connecting dots.
I made thread bead dots to mark the corners of the ghost square.I connected the elements in the nine patch like a square solar system around the the sun dot(star). Now I am looking while considering what I just wrote here.
