Two shelter cloths.
Because I am considering HOME once again.
It's just about April. Which promises to come in like a lion in sheep's clothing. I've been stitching on the cloth on the left, which started a while back while considering patchwork in some free form. And has developed though a simple method of coating a ground cloth while actually just using up what is here. Making many loose scraps of self into one. Which is a way to make a pile of cloth seem like less. But then it becomes more. I am calling it the House of Stray. Those three old stray cats, the Sun Moon Star Heads, who strayed together, are considering staying together.
The cloth on the right, an older one, named simply Shelter. A house of stray in a way too as I see it now. I realize it was just a way to frame going in a safe way. Just by putting a roof over it. But not really containing it. Being in, part of, the storm becomes the shelter here.
My only thought today is to repeat an old one. "Home is where the heart is." And then making a note to self, that one's heart is where one is. And where one is is hard for others to know really. Hard for oneself sometimes too. This might be due to the confusion generated by not being there. Or anywhere. Which might be tied to considering too many places.
House of Stray happened after I did this. A question about place.
And remembered this...
I will talk more about the direct foundation method (skitch skatch) for patchwork when I get through this last burst of winter.
Right now, every other day posting is a nice new easier schedule for me as I ease myself into less posting but more content. Hope you are with me on that.
