my daughter picked up this project…. made from the most simple of templates found in this book ….she set out on her own to make several felt balls.
as she sat quietly …. picking up pieces ….arranging the parts this way and the other ….making shapes and stitching together the little felt diamonds …. she began to see … little star pockets one way and rounded balls another ….
happy chance encounters with the softest of geometry (sometimes to the count of 6 and other times to the count of 10) …
the shapes and pieces that form the whole though simple ….
…. made from a wonderful afternoon full of discovery.
