mending kit

The outside/inside the box exhibit, part of Fiber Philadelphia in March, gave away mending kits at the door. It seemed an interesting metaphor for all the pieces that had to do with human tragedy. So I took one home with me and used the thread and pieces within to create this linen napkin study. Its a gathering of thoughts, or a swirling of ideas. Just how I felt while visiting the galleries there.

Paula - this is wonderful. I picked up several of those kits while there but I'm not sure where they went off to. You were quite resourceful with yours.

I saw you a few times in passing over the weekend but we never really got a chance to talk. Maybe next big gathering!
