  1. the joyful squares, an enchanted Place…the gold and green, the meadow that leads to it…..i like this Very Much. I hope
    it’s seen to be more than a placemat?

      Thank you for your words, Grace. A meadow, yes! I think it will be a much larger piece, but there will be some placemats too, probably 🙂

    these squares are beautiful, just as they are … and I’ve been thinking lately of how those who look at paintings don’t give a thought to much beyond “this one is good to look at” or perhaps “this one tells a story” … as opposed to cloth-making which seems more likely to elicit “but what it is FOR?”

    that said, I like making cloth that has a purpose … placemats and their kin … kitchen towels, bed blankets, pillows … like to feel them and see them and use them, even when the using makes them thin and shred … dis-integrating over time … much like living I suppose

      Cloth has such a long history of useful purpose, it feels like an imperative sometimes. I am craving a nice cozy quilted blanket, but thin. I don’t have such a thing, but I will make one!

    The thing is, I rarely decide on a layout. I just put a few together and look for a while and work around it.
    I love how the field of greens changed it into a garden of delights.

      “put a few together” – that seems to be how this is moving forward in spite of all the square play going on.

    I don’t decide on a layout either. This current version totally works imho. I don’t think it needs more solids to make it work.
