Mom always says, "never cut a knot, always untie it. If you can't figure out how to untie a knot, you'll never figure out how to solve your problems."

things held

 edges may hold:

as decorative or functional

 protection of the center/heart

define a space


attract our attention


 provide us with thoughts

or be as simple as a threaded needle guiding stitches to hold two things together. 

*I'm starting the year re-reading anne truitt.  she speaks of perception, process and self-examination.
(Daybook: New York: Pantheon, 1982)


  1. there is some truly beautiful stitchery happening here, you give us glimpses but they're enough. I can imagine the rest....

  2. oh that first image. great edge. love what it reveals as it dips down. don't know anne truitt.

    1. anne truitt was a minimalist - probably best known for her sculpture working mostly strongly in the 60s. definitely a woman in a mans world if you think of the time. her writing is very strong.

  3. oh this is so good to see your thoughts and stitching at the edge... am exploring the liminal space where the waves meets the sand this morning with stitch, knots, rotted silk and wrapping palm inflorescence ... it's a wild place where anything can happen

    1. yes, think sometimes the edge is forgotten but without it - all would scatter. wrapping stitch is soothing.

  4. Mmm.. good to be here in your article or post, whatever, I think I should also work hard for my own website like I see some good and updated working in your site. grey melange
