what's next ?

 

Gilly asked what's next?...
and i have been thinking in this direction all week,
tomorrow being the day of what's next.
i don't know. this month marks a year for me of
having found Spirit Cloth by accident and oh
so hesitantly beginning to follow. what an
amazing year.
so..a significant month to me. tomorrow morning
i will begin by fingering through the baskets of
scraps, hoping something happens. it's been
a while, with the preoccupation with the window
hangers, since i stitched a cloth. what if nothing
"comes"? what if i just stand there...blank?
i took this one off the wall board. i began it
in the Spirit Cloth Workshop. i'd like to do
whatever it is that would "finish" it....

nandas said...

Serena said...

be open
and brave!

cristina said...

what is significant is that you are fingering
through scraps, anticipating a happening...
it will happen like magic!

Suzanna said...

Even blank is good...something will come up to alter it. A bit like reverse gravity...

I'm sure you'll come up with something Grace, it looks wonderful, always a pleasure to see what you're doing,I do not much cloth weaving right now.

Love this piece. It has changed since I last saw it. Even when you think it's finished it might not think so! That wonderful piece of dark blue bottom right..is that velvet?

Marti said...

Or maybe it is done and holding it, sitting with it for a time, this special first cloth of this journey will show you what comes next. If you have not done anything with this cloth, this morning when daylight streams in, I would take it, along with your favorite thread and go outside, hold both up to the wind and see what blessing comes from the wind to you, dear windthread; (you know that I am a big believer in rituals!)

Isn't it amazing what a year can bring?

nandas said...

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Anni, no, but you have been
prolific!...all the intricate
work...i watch...

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Suzanna...i like that thought..
reverse gravity...yes...what
an interesting concept...

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Penny~am glad you remember it..
no..that dark blue is just a
scrap from somewhere, cotton...

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

Marti...yes, and i am glad of
your believing.
Nance is right.

lightning.

Deb G
it's really hard for me to
fathom. i have learned SO much
and my world has so opened into
the New...and i guess maybe more,
almost is that it is all so
perfect to my nature, to the way
i live my life. i feel very very
lucky.
