Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

a stitch in time....



when on my tumblr tonight at
SEED CAPSULES
I guess my relationship to fabric has become a little more along the lines of painting on fabric... although not in this manner above... i've included this image as i like it.
Here are a few images that were quickly found at Tumblr!

 I'll leave you with this intriguing work ...there are many more i could have included here... including work of people I know who are wonderfully gifted stitchers ...
