This basket holds my embroidery projects. It also frequently holds the audio book I'm currently listening to. Right now I'm working my way through Barack Obama's second book. I listened to his first book too, and really enjoyed it. In fact, I sort of fell in love with him. I guess you could say I'm rooting for him. You could say that, if you're the kind of person who'd say Niagara Falls is a delicately trickling brook. I think I'd be equally willing to root for Hillary, though, if it comes to that.My current project is something I've been thinking about for along time. For a year, in fact. It has changed periodically. At first I thought it would say, "It's been four months since we moved. I still miss Chicago." Then I thought it would say seven months. Then eleven months. Now it's been over a year, and the phrase still holds true. I like the design from an aesthetic standpoint, but it's also been therapeutic for me to stitch out these words.
I plan to put this piece in my shop. I don't think I want to look at it every day. But I have enjoyed working on it so far.
Now that these words are out of my head and made into something tangible, tactile, I realize they will always be true, no matter what the quantification of time in the first line. They are forever correct, infinitely accurate.
