having an edge~

"Does something which exists on the edge have no true relevance to the stable center, or does it, by being on the edge, become a part of the edge and thus a part of the boundary, the definition which gives the whole its shape?" Lucy Grealy~ Confusing at first off... but really it is a valid question. Sometimes I feel as if I am on the edge... and not part of the stable center... but,don't we all at times? On the edge of creating... and then not... and then finally stabilizing... stabilizing enough to create... a few little things... forming an edge... a soft edge... but still having a boundary. Am I confusing you? not my intent... my intent is to give the whole a shape... and I think I did... give the whole a shape... at least I hope I did... a hand made,hand quilted pillow... something to take the edge off a hard chair... something to stabilize and make someone feel centered. something that gives the whole a shape. and a handmade woolen needle keep.. with an acorn pincushion... something that may become part of the edge.. film and that leaves me at the edge... of my roll.. {smiles}

little gifts of friendship~

"Why did you do all this for me?" he asked. "I don't deserve it. I've never done anything for you.' You have been my friend,' replied Charlotte. 'That in itself is a tremendous thing." E.B. White (Charlotte's Web) that Charlotte~~~ so smart.. really... IMG_5323 a question I have asked a few times myself of late. because,I too...do not deserve it... and yet... I have been blessed...with some little gifts, some little gifts of friendship~ IMG_5314 unexpected gifts... of wool.... IMG_5653 copy and buttons... IMG_5658 and fabric... IMG_5637 flowers...and more.... IMG_5327 but beyond the tangible of shells and photos and books...
