Balcony Sewing

Balcony Sewing

Here is where I sew in the afternoon, on a balcony facing east so there’s no more need to be fearful of the sun’s aggressiveness. Because the sun is going west to paint the sky.

Sewing is an aesthetic experience. Not only does sewing please who’s sewing but it is also pleases the eye of those watching someone sew.  Otherwise, why would so many artists have used women sewing as a theme for their paintings?
