two legged dog




'meeting' 50x50cm 2010-2012


finally  'motherhood' is done, 67x177cm 2012








dye results: on the left walnut dye, the two larger strips in the middel: left was wrapped around banana-peels and right was wrapped around copper pipe; the two strips on the right were dyed in onion skins, the brighter version had onion skin bits tucked into the bundle, resulting in more colour

oh thank you
you know, having the blog, the visual diary as it were, helps me focus and makes me more aware of all that I see and feel and therefore do

Love this cloth. The circles, the weaving squares...the placement is very interesting to look at. What am I seeing in the bottom left? A green giraffe? So many stitches from your hands and heart, it's beautiful.

this 'motherhood' piece was in fact a labour of love and sore fingertips, the seemingly endless stitching was a wonderful meditation; the green giraffe comes from a design I made for the boys' birthcards, more on that here
