few things compare


few things compare to a nice stitched border. this one is a vandyke stitch. it is an easy stitch with an almost zen like quality ,once you get the hang of it, that works quickly and fills up nicely. 
this piece has gained a lot by using it as a border.more of the piece tomorrow. perhaps.
turning a page yesterday i mentioned colorand composition and on my visit to blogs found a  great post regarding color at mags ramsay's. she talks about  color as less representational and more allegoric of the subject, as a creator of moods.
follow the link she includes as  it is a very good read.
must be the zeitgeist as there a few people in the community reflecting on the topic.

    will take a trip by her blog and check out her thoughts. i experience this every day i am dyeing- especially fields of solid shades. i am endlessly amazed at how looking at the colors affects me so-and how it can change my mood.
    in general, i just feel better. in detail, each color sets me off in a new direction.

    i can see i need more neki...
    back soon.


interaction appreciated!
