I’ve actually been fitting in some hand stitching along with all my machine piecing. I put all my hexie flowers out together and realized I had softer hexie flowers and primary colors, basically two different quilts. So, I got to work, made 10 more of the ‘softer’ flowers (in ONE week!) and I think I might just be ready to put another baby quilt together. Swipe to see close ups of the individual flowers. Bunnies are included especially for @debwilmoth!
Today’s prompt from the #greatbritishquilter is asking what we watch while we sew...I am all over films, standup, series, documentaries...my laptop is my company in my sewing room or like today (and some may say a lot of other days) in bed while I exhaust myself with some simple mum sewing...today specifically it’s #louistheroux#thehangover and later I think I am already hooked on #thecircle after smashing #killingeve in over the last few days, I adore #jodiecomer such a beautiful talent!! But for now it’s finish the patches, another lemsip and the last bit of rest before the kids get home from school. #beavers#scouts#aurifil#handsewing#madeinyorkshire#lupus#flu @verykerryberry @sarahashfordstudio
Meet the Sanderson Sisters! We have full on been in the Halloween spirit around here. Luna's watched Hocus Pocus for the first time this year and since I'm on a felt making kick I was inspired. I love how these turned it so so so much!
Page no. 012 from the 'Body Texts' photography series, 2015. (Excerpt).
'Body Texts' is a set of photographic #selfportraits of the body covered with a #text describing critical corporeal states. In this series I attempt to translate the #body into the language of words and tackle this issue almost literally. I tried to explore boundaries and interaction between the body and #language . Particular parts of my body in the pictures spoke through the writing, a medium foreign to bodily expression. While writing through the body, on the body, by the body, as the body, and not only about the body I tried to force language to name these fields of corporeality which escapes language in every day life. I tried to verify a glossary of terms describing the sick body. It proved to be exceptionally poor. And eventually there weren’t enough words.
On the other hand photographies present the violence of language towards corporeality, which, by simplifying its sensations, surrenders to the linguistic poverty in the difficult attempt of articulating experienced sensations. There is also the violence of the body towards itself – because it tries to fit into linguistic boundaries, even though these boundaries are too tight for it. Gesture, the actual corporeal expression, is positioned in the background, beyond the focus of a camera, or even outside of a photographic frame. It is just a blurry element of a corporeal #expression , 'a body text', which is not fully legible.
