Sacred Cloth lV

13"x15", black cotton and black loose weaved fabric, rusty red with copper leaf, copper beads, hand cut stamps and embroidery.
Returning to my ancient cloth series, I have started with sacred.... torn, stained and bits of copper leaf. I began with words in my journal, decorative stitching, ritual, ancient, long buried, remnants. Slow process for me following words and bits of fabric...days spent looking, asking my self questions as well as telling myself my brand of archaeological desert stories. Yesterday I realized it was close to being finished and I felt finally at ease and calm.

    1. Thank you Connie, it was slow going...days between next steps. A big save was the embroidery...while taking my time stitching, I had a chance to find my way forward. I have 6 cloths to create...wish me luck!
