    1. This brought to mind “Writing Alone and with Others” (p.xxii) by Pat Schneider:

      “To grow in craft is to increase the breadth of what I can do … art is the depth …”

  3. mmmmmm, form and function dilemma….is it possible to sew the words through the patches and then back with a fine cloth so that the asemic words are tucked safely inside; yet can be made out, yet threads won’t catch toes?? best wishes for your solving and resolving!

    1. I’m thinking I may use Jude’s technique of stitching into the middle for the longer thread runs, while letting the smaller stitches show through on the back. The challenge that now looms (literally) large is the size of the cloth as I am accustomed to turning pieces every which way when stitching letters.
