Weaving "memories"

The dark squares are getting their "memory texts"-
It's interesting to see what the random process of cutting the newspaper page into strips provides in terms of words that could be part of a story - a story that readers have to puzzle out for themselves. Sometimes I use colours that have appeared in the pictures, but mostly it's about the weaving of some sort of story out of whatever words come up.
I'll add the hand stitch (with red thread ... the "red thread of connection" ...) while watching television or travelling on train or bus.

Working on two squares at a time means the sewing can be run-on, and that the two squares have "stories" that are connected, from using the same set of strips.
