A sky of baby blue

It actually was like that, for a couple
of hours...

Some progress on the piece I call
Flesh & Blood










I used seam parts of an old shirt once
again
, sewing them onto white linen -
which reminded me of bark - which reminded
me of Johnny Cash´s song "Flesh and Blood":
"I leaned against a bark of birch
And I breathed the honey dew.
I saw a northbound flock of geese,
Against a sky of baby blue.
Beside the lily pads,
I carved a whistle from a reed.
Mother Nature´s quite a lady,
but you´re the one I need..."

Then I found a piece of green-blue-
yellow-pink silk which Glennis at Shibori
Girl
sent me last year (thanks again, in case
you´re reading...) and made some of it into
sprouts, growing from the barren ground...

I do like how you connect word and image...These echoes are so satisfying. Also, the shoots seem to be protected, which is lovely.
