There you have it... a simple sewing machine. I had intended on doing some awesome straight stitch on some collage papers but went and got myself a headache... so a nap was the better choice.. but today I would like to bring in the thread to the papers...you know give it a straight run and see what happens or if the paper tears... and then add that into my collages... I don't want a quilt look but more so adding the straight stitch in for a new element to the collage pieces. I may end up hand stitching which is fine too.
Here are some collage and painted piece I started way back when and you can see the nice soft green tape around the edges... I would like to bring in small bits of denim. but then that's an idea and not sure where it will fit in...These piece where going to be part of the ICE exhibit but time took me away and never got there...I think it was the focus of the 13 moon series.
And therapy this morning or I might save it for the after dinner thing.. when it's cooler out side. I have these brick as a walk way to the front door of the homestead and they need to be weeded at lest two time during the warmer season and as you can see all the maple seeds have laid themselves nicely between the brick seams which after a few good rains I'll have maples growing there. I'll get my freebie little weeding wagon out that the hubby found at a tear down and scoot my bottom around and weed. It really gives me time to wander in the brain but lets me settle into a nice calmness so it's not so much a chore as it is a much need time for peace.
That's today's plans and not sure if they will all be completed but a good start. Yesterday though I was able to cut the lawn and then take a nice long sweaty walk in the woods but the cottonwood seedlings were all over the place. They call those trees Rustling Trees because of their leaves and the sounds they make. It all felt good...to be live and out side though hot as it was still was a good day.
