It was the stitching that made me SEE -- an experience I have never had before. Now that I know what it is saying, I shall have to listen closely so I don't miss it when it tells me its name.

under the needle
Sounds like a medical procedure, and come to think of it, I always felt that way about doing the actual machine quilting part. Ick. Today, for the first time in what feels like a year, I sat down at the sewing machine. This is a detail of a piece that has been sitting, unfinished, for about 4 months . I finally sat down to quilt it.
I made it without any preconceived notion of where it was going or what it was saying. Then, as I began to quilt, it spoke.
