A few more threads

I've added a few more stitches on my work in progress. 
Speaking of a which...
The lovely artist, Terry Jarrard-Dimond who I wrote about here has posted a few threads about my work on her blog today.

Her questions made me think more deeply about expressing myself. 

I hope you enjoy the interview and while your at it, stop by her website to gaze upon her show-stopping artwork here.
Thank you Terry. I am overwhelmed with your interest and kind words.

Working through a Decision

I've had to work on myself lately and work to make a decision about my future.

Whether to keep making stitches  and to continue to help with the care of my aging mother, or to jump into a huge, once-in-a-lifetime, curatorial position that would have been life-altering, challenging and a huge ego-boost, but would have taken me away from my passion. 

These are some of the stitches made while thinking about big changes.

It was painful to decide, ultimately, stitching will continue to sustain me.

So glad I have a community  of artists who support my decision and an amazingly loving and supportive partner who is my rock.
