It's April, still warm with cold coming. But mostly plenty of showers, true to form.
Yesterday, we, Soul-o and me, were out all day. I feel better for that.
Close to the earth.
He is always in motion in Spring. Mostly outside, going. I find it funny how he walks the paths if they are there.
I patched some path-work work. Offsetting the seam lines, making the stitch lines contrasted and messy, so they would show some imperfection. Working with thin coth that is more difficult to handle and less stable gives a nice organic feel to a grid. Here offset to look like brick. I am not crazy about this type of thing as an overall arrangement but I do like it here as it runs through the cloth like a path. Path is on my mind. How it divides space. Creates a place out of in between and makes that useful.
I like, here, how the patched pattern says solid but it has a feel of weightlessness.
I need to update my Newsletter. I am lazy on this humid spring morning.
That's how it went today. A kind of longing as I watch the snow fall. Like a walk in the forest.
After this ring the cloth will be about 40" square I think. I will probably begin backing it. Even though it will probably keep growing. Gotta dig out all the walnut dyed cloth for this ring. Use it. Each ring takes longer. But the bigger squares seemed to confuse that issue.
Power still up here but as temperatures drop and winds increase, well we'll see. Unplugging until it's over. Two fires to keep burning.
