Grace, I totally agree. As I cleaned up my weaving room today, all I wanted to do is sit and stitch and look at the fabrics I have collected for Jude's class. I feel like my life has changed since I discovered her blog. BYW I do love your little lady.

summertimes/Linda...i know,
exactly. i knew it when i found
Spirit Cloth last November. had
no idea tho that i could learn
all i have learned. and it
HAS
changed my life.
completely.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Gilly...dolls/figures...yes.
i made hundreds. loved each one.
but for whatever reason, this
cloth making is so much more for
me. i don't understand it at all.
but today was a turning point, or
a crossroad and somehow it brings
what they were into what IS now.
i am very very happy about this.

I was thinking about your dolls yesterday...and voila! What a good feeling when different threads of making start to merge...

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Suzanna~yes.
merge
merging.
when the boundries become soft
what's that word???
it's like what happens with the
placenta
in a womb
when things pass back and forth
as needs be...
can't think of the word...
but it's like that.
things DO have boundries, but
those boundries can soften.
some kind of evolving.
because it is for the good of the
whole.
xo to you
