Matchmaking

A self does not amount to much, but no self is an island; each exists in a fabric of relations that is now more complex and mobile than ever before.
Jean-Francois Lyotard, French philosopher (1924-1998)

This evening's challenge lay in interweaving fabric swatches to create a complementary whole. The permutations seemed limitless as we exchanged mates, removed those that didn't complement their neighbours only to find better matches across the way, and introduced new bits that had been pulled from the depths of storage bins. Yet none of our mutations seemed "perfect" so the challenge continues. Matchmaking is harder than it looks!

Hi Shari!
I love this picture and it captures perfectly the theme of the new book I'm writing. So I want to know if I can use your picture as the cover image - and I would give you credit for it, of course. Please let me know by email.
Thanks! Darlene
