Hopi Maiden

10 Sep

So I seem to be heading back into a phase of waking up much earlier than I’d like…but I’m also waking up with energy…pulled to cloth. To woven beings. I’m loving them. So much. And this morning, a cloth that has been sitting since I saw the eastern garter snake earlier this summer whispered itself out of a stack of works-in-progress. Whispered itself into the light…and all but pointed towards this being. When I set it on the cloth magic happened–suddenly Hopi Maiden with Squash Blossom.

    Patricia….i am so HAPPY for how perfectly these small weavings move into your
    work….how just really, amazingly perfect. The simplicity and subtlety of the woven forms
    hold the essence of so much MORE….that can be imagined by the viewer. in this case,
    the dance…such beautiful joyfull movement…oh….you really have found Something
    happy love,

      i commented to hermosa-beth over at Jude’s place. and want to repeat as reminder to self. these woven beings cannot be planned. when i plan, they don’t cooperate. they only appear as if by–yes–magic. on their own. now, this is both a bit frustrating but also totally wonder full. a reminder of the best laid plans and all that.

    Wow the magic is just dancing out of your hands & love that urgency of the cloth calling you out of dreamland!

      the urgency of the calling cloth–yes. it’s definitely worth waking up early to dance around with. and i couldn’t help but end with a preposition. thanks Mo.
