  • Contemplating techniques for investigating the number sequence of 3, 120, 6, 18 
  • Playing with 120 as it seems to have a " pleasing feel to it 
  • natural hand dyed cloth using naturally found plant dye enhances the random nature for me
    adding unplanned mark to the textile piece
  • stitched while observing my internal dialogue as to trying to make the pieces even yet
    relishing the little wonky lines that result in approaching the task with no prior
    measuring or spacing

    1. I had that same discussion with the man ... he finds the history of an old item interesting , travelling along the possibilities of its story .. yet although I find myself liking cloth, the torn, the frayed , the imperfect in search of new possibility ... I am not so much attracted to its story .. I tend to not go " back" as it were and stay in the moment to explore the sensory implications of my contact with the cloth, looking for its narrative as it presents itself to me in that moment but rarely ponder how it became to be ... interesting to ponder ...I think I have a relationship with the cloth itself rather than the person who made it ...
