beginnings and continuing

One need not be a chamber to be haunted,
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
Material place.

Emily Dickinson (LXIX, collected poems B&N 2003)

'weaving and embroidery art' by Jo de Jong, Amsterdam 1933
a friend found this book and thought it would interest me, so for the time being it's staying with me



dreamt about a new piece: a nine-patch made with prepared canvas and raw linen, I 'll paint in oils on the white and stitch through all of it and I'll make a stretcher for it
