This summer i harvested grass from the field in front of my house. Hay fever going crazing, sneezing as I gathered armfuls of sweet, green grass.
I have created, coiled and sewn a nest for my last piece of silverware to rest in. A hidden treasure, a house to keep it safe. A true nest egg. The new embraces the old – holds it safely. My hands bringing these worlds together through making.
Creative Challenge Day 20 – Spider weaves a web
I realise I have reached the natural end of my daily Creative Challenge.
The task is complete – of pulling together the threads of the past 3 years since I left London, and looking at the back catalogue of all the making projects and things I’ve made during this time. It’s been a great reminder that in amongst all the unknown and letting go of the last few years, there has also been a strong creative thread carrying me through and the weaving of a web.
