These flowers are a tremendous source of joy for all of us! They bloom in little random patches through the fall and winter and in spring they are in full bloom! The dog finds them irresistible for sniffing and marking and we knew they’d be great to sew myself to! What we did not expect, was that one of the little flowers would ride the thread like a zip line to my finger! To make visible the connection they’ve made into my heart!
Everything is stitched together. The dog is attached to a nearby post with a loop; we’ve zigzagged our way here looking at flowers and plants stitching ourselves across the town and through the park. We sew ourselves into the minds of the people we pass along the way! They are sewing their own lives. We are looping and weaving an existence together.
