A little embroidery I've been working on lately.

Paper landscape

Closeup of my current Holding My Breath piece in progress. This is a stack of 500 paper lunch bags. They are sitting on a small table with a sign that reads:

Step 1: Unfold paper bag
Step 2: Inflate with your breath
Step 3: Twist top
Step 4: Add to the pile

I like the layered, sedimentary, landscape-ish sort of feel to them at this stage.

And the hankies say...

I embroidered hankies with individual words that you can change around as you see fit.
Above currently reads:
I Love You Don't Miss Me

Other possibilities:
I Miss You
You Miss Me
Don't You Love Me
You Love Me
I Don't Miss You
I Love You

Drawing from the tradition of monogramming or personalizing our belongings, against loss, as a memento of a special occasion, or a caring acknowledgment, I embroidered a series of words on handkerchiefs. Literally playing on words, depending on their arrangement, this piece also serves as a tender reflection on relationships and the differences shifting one's viewpoint might make.

Artist Naomi Falk just led us in making circumferences of ourselves out of string/yarn/ribbon - now I can hold myself in the palm of my hand
