The American Tapestry Alliance has recently published a wonderful article written by Janette Meetze called The Tapestry Diary: It's about time. I think we can all thank Tommye Scanlin for starting this tapestry diary trend. Tommye is a tapestry weaver I admire a great deal for so many reasons. I'm not surprised she has started a movement.
The accumulation of time...
A Rumi poem, The Sunrise Ruby, as quoted by Tommye in the article
Submit to a daily practice.
Your loyalty to that
is a ring on the door.
Keep knocking and the joy inside
will eventually open a window
and look out to see who’s there.
A daily practice makes a large difference in a life. Adding a little bit every day, eventually we have made ourselves who we are. I think that happens in each moment. I applaud the weavers working on these diaries. They are really very cool!
