Just being at the beach is renewing
for the mind and the body.
But the worm pathways caught my eye on this trip.
I am really drawn to the chaos the worms have created
the regular diagonal lines created by waves and tides
the random diagonal line of tiny pebbles stretching towards
the top left hand corner.
I see couched chaos
atop a grid of simple diagonal running stitch
or perhaps stem stitch or back stitch.
I have gathered together in my baskets
so natural dyed threads that could be couched
onto a piece of linen or wool.
the basket of bright procion dyes would would be more fun.
But I am still thinking natural.
These guys are always inspiring companions
....today it is the very straight line of footprints
going off into the distance.
Three of them
Just one line of footprints.
A walk in the woods
always provides some inspiration
Just walking along
looking at my feet
to avoid tripping over roots or stones.
Perhaps more couching
or some other
Perhaps dots could be added
along a seam-line
to add emphasis.
I like that thought
to remember those thoughts
I have to record them here
or they will go poof into the vacuum of space
never to materialize!
