A fabriclet














I like it when I see my fabrics being used
in creating things of beauty, such as this...
Quite often, though, they´re not used at all,
but just kept, and sometimes looked at, and
fondled... that´s nice, too, I appreciate it...

Here´s a little fabric booklet, or is it a
fabriclet?
It´s just for keeping...;)















"It is very stretchy.
We know that, even if
many details remain
sketchy. It is complexly
woven. That much too
has pretty well been
proven. We are loath
to continue our lessons
which consist of slaps
as sharp and dispersed
as bee stings from
a smashed nest
when any strand snaps —

hurts working far past
the locus of rupture,
attacking threads
far beyond anything
we would have said
connects."

a delicate autumnal combination, your fabric and Karen's stitches, couldn't be better.

what a beautiful little book/fabriclet. i have been looking at louise bourgeois' work in the book "Fabric Works" & thinking about fabric books as a way to enjoy/treasure special pieces of cloth. Your work here also inspires.
