Tiny*Stitches*Miri

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

I am going to explore the concepts of 'blind spots', the fear of them, the courage to confront them and the friends who love us enough to journey with us as we expose them and change. To do this I have made a garment from gifted fabric but not sewn the last few seams together. As the 100 days unfold I will add some stitches every day and as they draw to an end I will complete the jacket. A collection of tiny stitches each day and maybe a sentence to go with them... a meditation on courage, surrender and rich relationships. A declaration that I will be more than I am right now.

Making Tracks


These stitches remind me of a piece of Aborignal textile that I have. That piece is about emus and watering holes. Today I'm thinking of many little steps that bring us to places of refreshment and nourishment. Little steps can seem pointless but eventually they get us to the destination. We do not all have the luxury of flights to one place - sometimes we must walk in little shuffling steps. But oh the delight we when find we were made of enough to get us there.
