Meditative Stitch


Art enables us to find ourselves and
lose ourselves at the same time.

I am thoroughly enjoying the Creative Strength Training explorations.  It is wonderful to immerse in the exercises and reflections.  As new material came in at the beginning of the month, I was finding the tendency to want to take it all on right away.  However I remembered there is really no rush.  I could slow down.  The 10 month format is part of what drew me to this course, knowing I could dive deep.

I am drawn to hand stitching, inspired by the Liz Kettle stitch meditation video that I shared with you in the last post.  Here are some of my stitch meditations:

The pieces are roughly 4" x 6".  It is a workable size, allowing time to sketch an idea with stitch over a shorter time period.  Some of these sketches may inspire a new direction in future.  For now I stitch.

Stay tuned!
