I just have to ask--
why are you sometimes so rude to me?
"Why oh WHY did you do that thing
back when you were eighteen???"
"It would have been so much better if..."
That's what I want to know.
I'm the one who had the gumption
to learn how to spin
AS you might recall.
to find herself naked and blue
with nothing but a few strands of warp
to hold her up.
It was all so interesting.
And I was curious.
the hard parts.
I mean really -- who does?
it HAS been really really interesting.
what could better --
a white-haired woman
with fire and light?
all I really did
was pick up that strand of yarn--
I turned into you.
We have stuff to do.
and don't forget
that I started working in the weft ends too
so that all of the tapestries in this post
(plus the bazillion others in the archive)
could be woven that way --
AND so that you could write
TUCKING THE TAILS.
I mean, it's not like the technique is limited
to the monochromatic/geometric stuff
you're doing now.
So come on --
let's mess around some more.
It's still so interesting.
