Contained - er

Just a few minutes in left-over time.   A study:  contained.  My wool vase with flowers on wool. Yet to be completed but still worthy of a picture in its 'as-is' place on the shelf. 

VASE:  A decorative container typically made of glass and used as an ornament or for displaying cut flowers.

Reading this morning about tapestry weaving in an issue of Fiber Art Now magazine  " starts at the beginning and moves on until you
reach the end.  You can't go back and fix something you did at the beginning without unweaving."   A quote from Dr. Jessica Hemmings, head of the faculty of visual culture, National College of Art and Design, Dublin. 
So it could be said about life from beginning to end....except we can't unweave. 
  Continuing to quote Dr. Hemmings, " Tapestry creates an unforgiving record of our inattention." 
Have a wonderful day and weave it well.

  1. I love this piece. You have such an eye for what works!

    If Dr. Hemmings is correct then I can't pick up tapestry--I have so little attention! I can's see myself sticking with such detail for any amount of time. It's one reason that I like improv so commitment to making 100+ of any one block! Instead I can make it up as I go along. Now that's how to have fun!


Thanks for stopping by...
