fixed to a line

Doesn't it look like our house is being gently pulled up into the sky?

Our house is on the market now - a for sale sign out the front and it is listed on a real estate web site.

It has been hard work getting it ready for sale. We are all really enjoyed having a de-cluttered living space - much more livable!

Saturday night I finished piece for the Castlemaine State Festival it is ready to be packaged and delivered tomorrow. This work is curiously biblical. Reminding me of the story of Noah and the great flood and the promise of peace and goodwill after destruction.

But is also makes me think of this photo at the top of this post our house. Of the power line connecting us to the grid - but it looks like our house is about to lift off into the sky. Perhaps there is a another work to be made of our house at the end of the stick the dove is carrying.

I wish I stitched this whole thing in grey and didn't introduce colour. I thought the blue would give the feeling of hope - but it doesn't at all. A bird carrying a stick is enough symbolism of hope - colour really isn't required at all.

I love how you've bookended (or more accurately, top and tailed) this blog post. Sorry to see the cottage go, but hope the next place is just as nice!
