mended spider webs_love this!

just came across this and im amazed!
check this out

Nina Katchadourian
The Mended Spider Web series

“The Mended Spiderweb series came about during a six-week period in June and July in 1998 which I spent on Pörtö. In the forest and around the house where I was living, I searched for broken spiderwebs which I repaired using red sewing thread. All of the patches were made by inserting segments one at a time directly into the web. Sometimes the thread was starched, which made it stiffer and easier to work with. The short threads were held in place by the stickiness of the spider web itself; longer threads were reinforced by dipping the tips into white glue. I fixed the holes in the web until it was fully repaired, or until it could no longer bear the weight of the thread. In the process, I often caused further damage when the tweezers got tangled in the web or when my hands brushed up against it by accident.

The morning after the first patch job, I discovered a pile of red threads lying on the ground below the web. At first I assumed the wind had blown them out; on closer inspection it became clear that the spider had repaired the web to perfect condition using its own methods, throwing the threads out in the process. My repairs were always rejected by the spider and discarded, usually during the course of the night, even in webs which looked abandoned. The larger, more complicated patches where the threads were held together with glue often retained their form after being thrown out, although in a somewhat “wilted” condition without the rest of the web to suspend and stretch them.”

this lady is great. check out her whole site.

woke up this morning, thought it was saturday

talk about a rude awakening. but i flipped it into a great morning.
gave my sore body a day off from the gym and walked down the street to chucks for oatmeal special. yums.

listening to fresh air podcast today. one of my favorites.
april 15, 2011 podcast is about director sidney lumet, who died april 9.
among the many movies he's directed, dog day afternoon (pacino) and 12 angry men are being discussed in the podcast.
very interesting.
i've added both to my netflix queue and excited to watch them both after listening to a few clips and looking at photos on google.

as for my ohjoy workshop last night :0)
i learned so much. she answered so many questions, and several i didn't even know i had.
i left feeling inspired and a little overwhelmed. so much to do.
but look how much closer i am now.

btw...stay tuned for our new blog (new name, little branding tip i got...shhh)

lovely tuesday. double post.

this collection is darling.
can't say how i much i love the photos.
some way they remind me of warm sunsets and naps on handmade quilts.
simply lovely.
filly designs

also, i've printed about 20 business cards for snax and snake while i'm waiting for my larger stock from moo to be delivered.
i think it would be a good idea to have a few on hand for my workshop tomorrow.
getting pretty excited.
i really feel hopeful and a little bit closer to doing what i want.
