Revisiting Stitching

September 7, 2020 by Linda A. Miller

The practice is to come back to the action—insert needle, loop yarn, pull through; breathe in, breathe out—without holding on to the promise of the finished object.

~Jennifer Urban-Brown, excerpt “Zen Mind, Knitting Mind”

In 2018 I learned about Liz Kettle and her stitch meditations from Jane Dunnewold in the Creative Strength Training course I was taking (now in the 3rd year of CST as I write this). I have continued to play with these mini contemplations in myriad forms (sizes range about 5″x7″). They are a simple way to keep my creativity flowing using what I have on hand. In this unusual year of staying at home with lots of fits and starts of creative juices, they provide impetus to keep on making!

I have had questions about where to see more of the pieces that I’ve shown on my Facebook page. So, here are a selection. I will share more in the my next blog. Enjoy!

    I do enjoy seeing these stitched mediations. They are interesting, clever and inspiring. Thank you. I have a friend who is also cleverly creative. She weaves amazing baskets and makes beautiful quilts. I will share this with her so she can see and enjoy your work here. She and I went to Santa Barbara once to see your some of your creations on display there. Creative work enriches our lives. It gives me great pleasure to see your artwork.
