5/15/11 I am finished with “House Cat with Atropa Belladonna and Kill.” I began this piece while I was student teaching in the fall and I neglected it for a long long time. I am wondering if I should keep the edges tattered and frayed or pin them under. The facade of cool- cat surrounded by a beautiful thing. Both kill for fun not necessarily for survival however, adaptations can lead to recreation.
I need to move on and in a different direction I keep thinking about sewing paper sculptures and now I am reading a book on rats. I’m going to pull out some paper and embroidery floss and see what develops- I’m also thinking about nests. I’m all over the place but I need to get some thoughts out of me.
