Ever get that feeling in the pit of your stomach?

You know that feeling. The one that comes with worry. and anxiety. That's what inspired the work on this quilt. It's a simple black and white image with worry lines traversing the surface. Should I do this? or should I do that? Do I go here? or do I go there? Did I pay all the bills on time? Why am I forgetting things? How am I going to fit one more task into my day? Is that bulge over my beltline growing? ad nauseum.......

Sometimes they feel like big black boulders within. Erupting, surfacing, juggling my head.

It helps to stitch them out.

where have i seen this before?

This rough construction came out of nowhere for me the other day. And I feel like I have seen it somewhere before. It's really bugging me. I feel like I am channeling someone else's thoughts. So I am going to wait till I feel more comfortable with it to proceed.
