Some old eye. On the wall for so long now. A cloth woven block, cut to form a mask with a bit of patchwork underneath. Cropping, cloth style. A kind of ragged reverse applique if you look at it generally. Basic Ragged Mask applique is described in Spirit Cloth 101. (I'll have a lot more to say about that soon) The cut out was a circle. Pinched and folded on the sides to shape it like an eye.
Applique is a big category. I realize that it is bigger than I have ever expressed. And more than that, Patchwork is much broader than usually presented. In my head anyway.
As I move toward the new Feel Free format, I will start from scratch in a way. This blog will remain my day to day. The building of the site will roll along with reference here as it applies. I have a community gallery in mind if you are interested. We can talk about that.
I squint my eyes when ideas form. Looking is more wide eyed. Seeing is a cropping exercise. Refining, measuring focus, framing vision. Considering many angles.
I need about a week to get some stuff done. A roof repair, a doctor's appointment, a visit to Social Security, a small journey to see my boy. And some technical learning curve. I might be posting but let's see how it all goes.
