I found this under the word “piece” in Thesaurus.com and couldn’t stop saying it: “A piece is a part separated from the whole.”
Over and over as I sewed and walked around and cooked and took care of all the things you do in a day, “A piece is a part separated from the whole”.
It’s ironic, don’t you think, that the same word when used as a verb, means to join together?
This last week I’ve been piecing together pieces of kimono silk and making scarves.
Laid out flat, you can see all the parts. But they really come alive when you twist them around your neck.
A black, white and red one.
Depending on how they lay, you see different parts. Sort of like many scarves in one.
Pieced with kimono silks that have a bit of sparkle and shine.
All for the CraftBoston show December 7 – 9.
Black and white, so graphic.
It’s a good analogy for these times, don’t you think? Separate pieces coming together. Yes!
