Now, that may just be the most pretentious post title of all time, in which case I should apologise, but honestly? that's just what it has felt like this week. I have started to think of this denim as a sort of map, a landscape that has evolved as I have stitched. I have to thank some of you for helping me make this connection - all those who looked at my little circles and saw the blood moon really started something off!
As a result I have been thinking as I sew about the connection between stitching and ritual and about the themes that preoccupy me. This is definitely something I am growing into: if you had asked me a year or two ago I would have said it was all about pretty, "shiny" stuff, quilting as an excuse for fabric, but now I feel more comfortable identifying for myself some of the internal stuff that goes on as well.
There may be a couple of posts in this at some point, but for this week I have contented myself with taking some photos that please me, looking at the denim like a landscape or map.
