weaving cloth

I watch the magic that Jude creates when she takes strips and scraps of cloth and weaves them into whole pieces and makes a story of them.

Way back in another age, I was taught to turn and finish and hide the seams... way back I had problems coming to grips with the raw unfinished edges on 'art' quilts, but the more I work with the ripped and torn, the easier it gets.

This little piece of weaving was just 'for' - not part of anything, not with a purpose, not to exhibit, no one to ask 'what is it for' - it was just for me, to stitch and touch.

It might turn into something else or it might just stay as it is and go into a drawer and years later I'll find it to touch again and be reminded that things don't always have to be 'for' or finished or turned and tucked.

This looks quite interesting. Nice colours. I'd love to know what it will become.

I love your experiments with the celophane. Very interesting. I wonder if stitching it down on something that would give, then ironing it. What would it do?
I'll have to try it. Thank you for telling me to keep all "Stuff" out and in the light, otherwise it breeds. I know this rule! I use it with my 17 year old!!!
