Abstraction

borduurkleed Heerde

Was at my mothers in Heerde the other day, and ambled through the town of my birth with her, arm in arm. We visited the local community center – brand new and pretty nice – where I met with a gigantic wall hanging made up of embroidered samplers, all about Heerde. And very nice it was indeed!

I checked it out just now – it was made by the organisation for local history and the samplers were all made for the occasion by a group of regulars. I was curious about that – how on earth does one get one’s hands on so many samplers all on one theme? The result I found intriguing – cross stitch is a way of forcing the mind to go from concrete to abstract that I haven’t explored yet.
