it's progressing and looking good. can't wait to see it completed.

Elizabeth said...

hello grace, just a silly comment really but I have a rocking chair rather like yours - do you sit and sew in it?

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Elizabeth ~ thank you for a
question. i like questions, not
silly at all.
yes. i do. it's a great evening
chair...good light there from the
West. i also will sit there more
because it's directly across from
the futon couch. so good vantage
point to admire the new cover when
it's finished.
nice thinking we have similar
rocking chairs.

jude said...

how big will this be?

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

jude ~ maybe 7ft x 6ft?
needs to hang over the back of
the futon...otherwise whatever
is on there ends up in a wad by
the end of the day.
the "gift of the Universe" piece
is 5 X not quite 3.
is resting on the rocking chair
because i am back to the kantha
on the window hanger.
needle chant
the bottom is close to finished.
one more day.
sides easier...

I think your futon cover will be wonderful - restful

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Claire ~ Thank You, and am really
looking forward to that. in
months when there's more time to
be in the house, it will make a
big difference in how that all
feels...thank you for coming by.

Oh, it's going to be a great cover for the futon.

Patty said...

I like that you discovered the materials for your 'new' cover
from material otherwise discarded.
So much of what society throws away is still useful and lovely if we
look at it honestly.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Patty ~ i am really looking at
this piece of work that someone
had the urge to create and then
for whatever reason, did not go
forward with....really looking.

jude said...

i came back to see if it was still resting.

nandas said...

jude, i think its tired, needs its beauty sleep!... ;-)

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

no, it's waiting. resting while
it waits. listening to the needle
chant of those kantha stitches.

waiting its turn.

Grace, a friend has posted this:

perhaps a relative of the one you found...

this is so interesting, great to see it all in progress. And nice to see it resting too.
