New freehand embroidery, with variegated french knots in wool on felt.
If you didn’t get a chance to visit me at this year’s League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair, you missed seeing my latest design: Mandala of French Knots.
According to Wikipedia:
“Mandala […] translates as ‘circle-circumference’ or ‘completion’ […]
a concentric diagram having spiritual and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism.”
That makes sense to me. I’ve been thinking a lot about Mom. And the circle of one year of grieving was completing just as this design was born.
Cool tones on black was the first incarnation of the new Mandala embroidery.
Plus, it’s summer, my garden is booming and broccoli reminds me of french knots!
