Summertime stitching carries on with this large piece.
As I stitch my thoughts turn to
The leeward side
The sheltered, protected side colonized by moss and lichen.
This piece also reminds me of my need to for a strong, firm foundation.
I like to have my feet on terra firma both physically,
emotionally and creatively.
Therefore my rock balances comfortably on another.
The sunlit side, the side that faces the world,
is bold and confident.
The leeward shadowy side more subtle and retreating.
Perhaps full of secrets and surprises.
