Home. The cloth that carries me further.
In the morning's sideways light, I can get a feel for how the stitch from the day before is changing the texture of the cloth. So much changes, slowly, with stitch. How cloth touches cloth. The feel of it. How the pieces begin to move together. Flow as one.
The fire element holds the center. I have begun to add the water element as a series of spirals and rings that act as a connector, both for the layers and a surface texture. They form a kind of ripple effect. An old sea. I will use them to make the components flow together, and also as a guide to add more feathers and the basket motif for some extra sense of holding and keeping here and there. When many things come together, flow is very important. Very useful. One thing into another that still allows for going. Just going together. Peace.
