Red Thread of story
So I have completed my first ever block for the Story Save Quilt...!
The method used ? I guess it's called applique...and writing with stitches ?? I don't know the technical term, but I do know that it took me a long time and as a beginner, was quasi impossible to keep neat and tidy. So I decided to give up on writing neatly and chose to go with a particular punk aesthetic which I hold dear.
What does this have to do with Story Save ?? Well, for me, the storytelling craft is something that I learned first by listening to my elders. The red thread of story has been gifted to me and is something that I follow in my day to day life - allowing me to fly while remaining nicely grounded. It has brought me to many an interesting place and I am grateful for it.
I took this work in progress with me to Montreal, Toronto and New York when I went on a little storytelling tour, so I feel like it got nicely charged up with all kinds of influences and impressions.
