Soul Reminder

Something was really brewing inside me yesterday. I went into the studio vaguely thinking I might do more handstitch or begin a gift but nope, that snow dyed piece I had previously unpicked didn't want to be put away and suddenly some hand pieced blocks declared they would be the perfect partners for it - on a large piece. So I played along and prepared a size and shape that felt right. I was curious as to when exactly did I do the snow dyeing, so I went back in my journals and discovered that I had made the first of these blocks the same day - and had an intention to make a larger piece. Well, at least my psyche remembered!

I proceeded to nearly cover the whole of this with other fabrics I've dyed and pieces that I've partially stitched, but I'm not at the stage yet where everything has found its place. This piece is going to be called 'Palace of the Soul' and I feel excited and know I will be spending alot of time with it.

Nancy - I was noticing these colours around me in the woods, today - and I am really enjoying the process.

Hoola - thank you! I think there's a combination of intuition and reflection that goes on.

Grace - so glad you are able to comment, now, and yes, I'm on the big cloth journey, with you!

Mary Helen - thank you!

Joe - I like those colours too and thanks for your enthusiasm!
