Swirl/Inspire Me Thursday



I love the topic of swirl. I love the swirl of the embroidery thread being used by big strands of thread, little strands of thread all swirled together into a solid piece of embroidery. Some broken, some whole, some tangled, some loose, all together in a swirl. A meditation using thread from the skein or piece by piece. A mosaic of thread. A mosaic that brings my life together in a constant use of metaphor. Starting, finishing, knotted together each little stitch every single day.

LOVE your picture! you've captured the "swirl" too! it's so nice to have the topic fit the artwork i have done, but it's also nice to get that spark of motivation or imagination from these prompts!

What a lovely image, the hand and heart. I think it is very powerful and definitely speaks to much that we all hold dear. I guess this is another metaphor. Viewing this takes me to a peaceful place inside. Thanks for the journey.

Also thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. What a treat to have visitors.

Thank you for the comment. You have an innovative take on "swirl" as well! This was my first week to submit for Inspire Me Thursday, and I've enjoyed browsing all of the interesting perspectives (and mediums used) on this topic. All of your embroidery is beautiful!

Thank you for all your kind comments. I love Inspire Me Thursday because they tend to take me out of the box and I usually have something that pertains to the topic.
