blue



this jacket (a gift) has turned blue; it used to be brown, a brown I cannot wear and I so didn't; but I liked the jacket and decorated it with sequins, textile paints and machine-stichting in various colours but I still didn't wear it. Yesterday I realised what it needed was a dye and I dyed it a jeans blue and it turned out all right and now I see I have to use denim weaving  to finish it and so I washed all my denim cut offs and they are drying in the studio and it's beautifully blue in here.

somehow, this photograph of the
blues hanging from your ceiling
brought me INTO your space, your world. i love looking at it.
really. a lot. it's like looking at a surprise bit of myself that i didn't expect to see.
the jacket is gathering unto itself a life of it's own.....

hey Grace, how wonderful you enjoyed staying in my space!
you know I have been feeling great all day, maybe your vibes were coming through, the sharing of it all....
are you in the Boro class as well, I hope so, that would be fun.
