I'm still working on the ripple effect. Mending the design to form another underlying layer of motion that spans across from one area into another. Like a bridge, but a river at the same time. I mostly stitch on these as dark and light turn into each other. At dawn. At dusk. The quieter times in a day.
You may or may not remember the flight path , so let me use an old picture from here. To make it clearer in the scheme of things. I have made a little map on that old photo (before a lot of the stitching) , to show where this detail is happening
There are many kinds of motion (going) in this cloth. Spin, floating, reach, vision, flight, wind, gathering, holding... and the ripple effect, the flow, which will connect them all. And can you see a basket? At first I thought of only the center but I think the flight path might find a new use, defining the circle of holding in a bigger way. Something OverFlowing. So I am off to imagine that. Dreaming is going too.
Sometimes it is good to stand back and look.
