The central square of ‘Metamorphosis’ (formerly known as the crone cloth):
Silk shapes, hand-dyed by Heike, stitched to wool batting.
Not consciously intentional in the composition stage, but I like the way there are lighter areas among the darker ones. It reminds me of a line from The Sound of Music: ‘When the Lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.’ While not being a Christian or embracing the idea of a Lord, I do like those words. And because this is a cloth about endings and beginnings, it seems natural that light should give way to darkness and vice versa.
Brief update on the neuralgia situation: turns out it was a nerve dying, which is quite as painful as it sounds. The affected molar is being extracted tomorrow, so I may be out of action for a day or two. Looking forward to getting back to normal!
