Another great piece. Sorry to poem-I'm not a word person.
Like this series with the hand stitching. Just wondering-do you use any fabric from neckties in your pieces?
Hi Janet - I haven't used ties as of yet. Do you use them?
Another great piece... I can only imagine the pleasure you had making these... and the thoughts that went with it..HaikuDark shadows reach outKisses, kisses, hugs as wellSleep and dreams secure
This piece in particular speaks to me deeply. Very nice piece, Lyric.
Lyric, I love the stitching. Here are my thoughts:Fiber laced with stitches,Like footprints over time,Evidence of lives past,Fragments of lives revered.Judith Anderson
Lyric, I really like your pieces. Here is a poem you can use if you like, though it may be too long for what you have in mind. It's hard to format correctly in this box; in general, the capitalized words--except those in quotes--mark the beginning of a new line.Once youGazed, fresh from heaven, at eyes looking into yours,Filled with excitement, the spring of our memories—Days full of “Lookit!” and “C’mon!” and “Let’s go!” With never a thought for the winter—unheard of—a Dream seen imperfectly, glimpsed only briefly inHospitals, dim old eyes, so far away. Now youRace in the sun-dappled shadow of summer trees.Full-leafed they stand, gently cradling your climb-spent form,Looking right through you with eyes that know everything,Things that you don’t know, like soon you’ll be leaving yourTree-climbing days, and that someday you’ll look intoEyes full of questions you can’t always answer, thatCould not conceive the tenth part of your meaning, ifEver you tried to explain what you’ve learned. Then youCome back one day, with your eyes slowly opening,Look into eyes that have seen the whole story, thatKnow in the autumn the joy of the seasons, andGaze straight from heaven and call you their own.
