Seems they may have finally finished falling.
Because I wove the ground from strips of cloth, and since I left ragged edges to these strips because I love that look, and since I did not secure all these fabulous edges before stitching down the leaves, or the spider, or, indeed, the web, I am now doing just that to secure them all so they don’t fray away. I want this cloth to be a useable one, that was my intention from the beginning, so it is important that it can be washed and used without it falling apart. I am loving the weight and the feel of it already and would be more than a little sad if it were to disintegrate on first washing.
From the wondrous Jude I have learned to use a tiny back-stitch to secure said edges – it may take a while but will be well worth it.
This piece measures 3′ square and will be the centre of the finished cloth. I have not yet decided how it will grow, definitely more woven cloth I suspect but that’s as far as I have come in my thinking. Finishing the edges is a wonderfully contemplative and, for me, deeply absorbing practice , one which I feel sure will produce ‘what comes next’.
