As a quiet protest to the expectation for productivity and completeness, the series Piecing Together embodies interruption in a way that expresses the connecting experience of something left unfinished. Each embroidery fragment is sourced from incomplete embroidery and hooked rug projects. Stitching together moments of care and attention, the embroidery framed within tablecloths and runners connect each of these maker’s efforts at their place of pause. These pauses give space to the stories that can be imagined in these fragments and serve as reminders to where and how value is placed on quiet moments in life.
