"Every New Beginning Comes From Some Other Beginning's End"
(Lucius Annaeus Seneca)
When my journey with 'Stone Pathways' came to an end
I was reluctant to let go
So the remnants of white backgrounds were stitched into strips
these were then filled with embroidered pebbles.
Remnants of the stones were sewn together in a rough fraying drunkard's path.
and pebbles embroidered immediately stitched all remnants together.
That was last year
But now a new year has begun
and so a home has been found for my remnants....
There is so much white background surrounded by nothing but grey
So I have sprinkled bits of whiteness elsewhere.
Tiny dots are easier inserted with reverse appliqué
Larger ones with simple appliqué.
Perhaps tiptoes alongside heavy steps along life's pathway.
Frayed edges create a pathway of their own
Different paths, different lives.
Have no idea yet how I will stitch my new pathways
One step at a time
Next step will be to attach them to a background
and as I stitch them down by hand
ideas will come.
And here is a small beginning made many years ago
that hasn't found a home yet
but he will never be discarded
I love him!
Happy New Year
