WIP – SMALL MATTERSPosted: May 6, 2015
I am a collector. I hold on to ticket stubs and scraps of paper in notebooks, I stack abandoned craft supplies along the wall in my room, I still own jewelry that was given to me when I was six. But more than these material items, I delight in amassing quotes.
And lately, I’ve been comin’ across some good ones. While I’m not exactly sure what to do with all these solid little sayings… I have a project in the works for one of them.
Not too long ago I shared this Thoreau poem and I expected that that would be the end of it. Until, I came across this table napkin in my stash, and the colourful grid sang out to me.
Copying the statement with a fabric marker, I have began to stitch it out. I am really enjoying using up a bit of “unknown” thread from stash box.
There’s a potential bigger scheme ahead for this piece when it’s finished, but we’ll see how it all comes out in the wash, especially that fabric marker!
What’s your favourite quote? Do you have any special sayings stitched up?
