Starts and Stops (repeat)

I tore Japanese silk kimono lining into strips and laid them out until I was pleased. As I arranged them, I realized the strips represent events in my life, with all the ups and downs, starts and stops, and sometimes going two steps forward, one step back. The beauty is the feeling of progression, in my life and in this piece. This wall hanging will have a horizontal orientation.

Stitching is immensely satisfying for me, esp with rich colors and materials.
