Lagging

The last week or so has also been consumed by my fathers' health issues , and his partners' and I am about to take a few steps back from all those issues because they do not put food on my table or buy school books for my daughter.I need to regather myself and concentrate on the main game which is to keep my business going in these challenging economic times, to seize opportunities and to develop  new workshops ( I am developing a workshop working with the material I worked with in Vicenza which you can see here) and I have become re-enthused with polyester non-woven fibres in using them in a much more painterly way.But I need to  write it down and do the work. Also I am already behind on my France book, and the last couple of weeks have impacted not only on the work I produce but on the head space to do the work and I need a quiet head space to write.

I did do some stitching by hand on more sentinelle panels one of which was a commission. I struggled with the hand stitching because all in all I felt emotionally exhausted  by everything that has happened these last weeks since being back. But on the other hand it has reinforced that I need to keep going with these girls, they contain so many elements of the things that I believe in that somehow they have helped me come to the decision I have come to.
The turquoise sentinelle is for sale for $150 AUS plus postage. They measure about 6-7 inches by 18 inches and are entirely hand stitched.

I did manage to get to see my mother this week and stayed a night with her as it usually takes  about 2.5 hours to get to her house. Her garden was in full bloom.The colours of the particular flowers I photographed seemed to  blend in with the sentinelles I have  recently stitched.


I am currently reading a biography about Judy Chicago and wonder whatever happened to the Birthing/stitching project and the women who worked on them- does anyone know?

I believe that project ended up scattered amongst a number of museums. Somewhere I have the catalogu for it but cannot find it right now. I must alphabetize my books.

Bergen Rose said...

no, but i worked on the dinner party project with her before the birthing began...

Wow Bergen did you?? tell me more/tell us more?

Judy Martin said...

Dijanne, you are NOT lagging.
You are doing fantastic things.

Health care issues for our elders are a constant worry on anyone who has a sensitive soul - (meaning artists) - and they drain yet at the same time feed us.

Be well
And Judy Chicago is always good to read about . I took my daughters to see her speak a couple of years ago in Toronto.
