Cloth is Comfort

Cloth is Comfort
    
 I am home again. Done with the airplanes. No more strange beds. Suitcases unpacked and various goodies have found their place here in my home. I spent a week in bed mostly, just sleeping. or at my computer drowsily emptying my email box. 

     Finally the time is coming round to me, or me to it. And then the election hit and I just wanted to go back to bed. I still do. And amidst all this confusion, this lethargy brought on by jet lag and confusion, I am seeking comfort. And when I seek comfort I always turn to cloth. It has been my love forever. 

To put a needle to cloth and make my imagination come alive with the colors and twists of thread and fabric. It really is my greatest love. So I am picking up my needle again despite my eyes. I have let my eyes rest for two years, have they healed? NO. Resting is not going to do it. So why should I spend the rest of my life rejecting my greatest love if it isn't benefitting me at all?
 I go for an appointment in December to have the damage looked at once again, I will discuss it with my doctor then but in the meantime I am going to sew. I need to.

  1. Do what you can, do what you love, give your inner eye that vision.

    1. Yes, in this moment it is what I need. The wire is fun and I enjoy it also but the fabric...that is pure comfort.

  3. I am bowled over, wowed, mesmerized by your Sun Art. The Sun is my iconic symbol of Hope. I haven't followed you long enough to know what your eye issue is..but if working with fabric doesn't hurt the condition that do what you love. You have so much to say in your art.

    1. Thank you so much Carol, I did a lot of fiber art from 2007- 2012 and then the doctor diagnosed me with bubbles in my retina brought on by fatigue and stress. She said the best cure was rest as there was no other treatment. I have 'rested' for far too long. They did go away for a short time but then reappeared and show no sign of departing again. I can't wait my whole life and though I love making the wire jewelry it is not my real passion. Thank you again for your sweet compliments. They mean the world to me :)
