Talking to myself

One of Jude's skills is to talk or think about why or what if.
Why is it that too many turned edges on top of each other are distracting?
How can I rethink edges and components? 

Some turned edges and some softened raw edges. I used a needle to
pull one or two threads from each side of the blue grey backing.
This left an less solid flat edge. Much better.

Things were kind of static for the little horse here.
So I tilted some parts. Now I see the heart needs to 
break out of the outside border...snip, snip.

This needed a broken border, too. 
It feels bigger now.

This talking to myself is very helpful. Will unfold the edges 
on this cloth and give this bird some room to wander. 

Thank you, Jude.

American Boro Cloth

All flags sewn on (4" squares) nine patch.
Have made linen frayed patches to sew on.
Mending places to show where they've broken. 
Respect for all.

Sewing lately

The dots came in handy making this. 
It just continued to grow up into space. Then it grew roots.
At least one blouse in it. Jude's class is showing in my work.

I keep hearing folks yelling about what our country is or isn't.
What if it could be many realities respecting differences.
Far from where we are now but as close as our noses.

Now I need stripes.
