Winter Solstice

We were photographing Winter Solstice the other day
so thought I would record it here.
If you remember
I couched strips of cloth onto canvas
Spiralling round and around
growing slowly through last winter.

Rhythmic stitching
Meditative stitching
it got too heavy
I had to focus on keeping it stable
in my hands
on my lap.


  1. This was one of my favorites. Its nice to see it again, especially as we slip into that time of the year.

  2. It looks great - although I can well imagine how heavy it must have become!

  3. This is one of your best, Penny.

  4. Very, very good. And .... is it heavy?

  5. I love this one Penny! Can you tell us how big it is? It's hard to guess from the picture and this curious mind is interested in knowing.

  6. Hi, I've just found you! Love your work and the wonderful way you have with thread and fabric. I also love thread and fabric and am trying to get to the point of not planning it too much... a tall order for me... but you inspire me to keep going. Thank you for sharing your work.
