Another Gathering of Holes


Watery holes with a different approach.


I commandeered some blanket stitch and ordered it to whirl around a circle.


Only when the stitching was done did I take scissors in hand 
and boldly cut the holes. 


The story of this cloth is slowly forming in my mind.
It is a watery piece with a sandbank strip of rusted cloth
appearing and disappearing beneath holes
and gaps in the watery fabric.

  9. The movement of the stitched waves across the deep water fabric and then the rusty areas showing through the holes - it's all beautiful.
