stitch, stitch, spin (The West Yorkshire Hoard), Jan 2020
A female hand – a valuable skill, a spindle.
A known repetitive rhythm – an action that can be picked up and put down.
The working of a needle feels similar – the stitch is needed and there is a need for stitches.
Holding together, binding for a time, a personal intent.
