Catalog Green

6"x10", tea stained cloth, assorted dyed cloth,machine free stitching, embroidery.

A study of colors of grass. Choosing cloth and using my brand of archeology to catalog orderly examples of remembered sections of lawns, grass seeds, meadows. Created as a notebook page...worn from review. I'm 73 now and I forget and remember so many precious moments. I remember seeding a lawn, laying on fresh cut lawn watching clouds, walking knee deep in warm meadow grass. This might be the beginning of a series of 'cloth notebooks'.

  1. I do hope so! This is simple but very striking and your post very evocative. I well remember childhood games on our lawn at home and of the scent of the grass after my father had mown it. Thank you for sharing your memories and prompting mine.

  6. wow - this this wonderful, Mary Ann; I think it could stand as a finsihed work - I'd like to see it in a frame! I also like the idea of a cloth notebook, though!

  7. Thank you Sharmon...I meant as a page (framed) of a found notebook. I usually leave a tied thread to denote a loose page.
