Drawing Challenge :: Time Travel









///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Time travels back and forth and stands still.

My Grandmothers things.....things that I inherited when she passed away...............I take them out of their protective layers and carefully unfold the napkin she didnt carefully fold.....to touch the stitches that she knitted..........for who?...............for whom its nots clear...but delicate fine complex threads brought together.............unfinished business but still kept and not unraveled.


Wooden reels of cotton on a length of wire.........................shaped and bent...........by Grandfathers hands and tools..........bright colours............as bright as seen by my Grandmothers own eyes................connections made.............threads and embroideries......no longer in use............doiley protection between surface and vase.....................and here a project never started.........the mat waits patiently for the thread to be added...............suspended in time...............and time becomes reflections mixed.......vivid and vague...........its a scent mingled with image.


This weeks challenge is hosted by our clever Sabine aka MissHerzfrischs such a clever theme of time travels. If you are curious to see how others have interpreted this theme I suggest when you are finished here you pop over to Sabine's blog and follow the links.

Have a good week
