Whenever my soul needs restoration I head for the coast; the sounds and smells of the ocean infuse my spirit with peace and life. My inspiration comes from the coastal town of Rockport, Texas. Long known as a fishing town, Rockport is also home to artists of all mediums. Two things set this piece apart from anything else I have ever done. First, other than surface embellishment, the entire piece was created in tunisian crochet. All yarn used is handspun – either by myself or purchased from other fiber artists. Handspun yarn lends a sense of energy and life to any project, a quality that seems so perfect for freeform.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea. ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh
