A large cloth, for me, holds story, simply because it spans time.
I have started a large cloth. For my son. With my son in mind.
I am stepping back today, to make a place to hold it, the story. Not just in my head. So it might be shared as well.
I don't know how it might become, because story unfolds. But I know it will be a blanket.
It started like this. While in between.
Just three squares. Three that would be in between two more threes. Making Nine. That simple beginning again.
Yesterday I took this picture. Of this cloth I named Holding Pattern, for good reason.
Before I go any further, I want to step back into August. Where I started. Quietly. Without saying. Because there are things to say.
I will create a category here for Holding Pattern. And a project page at Feel Free... LARGE CLOTH - Holding Pattern. And a Flickr Album so it can be viewed as a slide show. Because I know I will want to look back. Story unfolds . So you can only hold it by looking back.
I want to use this stippling as a language element. I want to name it Energy Field. I think it might be interesting to create a bunch of them. Energy squares. And then experiment with what happens when they connect. Energy is a nice way to express that which is in between forms.
Meanwhile, this one is very thin.
I love that.
Keeping the fire going has just become part of the day here. Season can wear us thin. But also strengthen us. It is all quite lovely.
