"My Basket Holds - Just - Firmaments," an installation that was part of my show of paintings and lace at Kingston Gallery, Boston, December 2007. It was inspired by this Emily Dickinson poem:


Perhaps I asked too large -

I take - no less than skies -

For Earths, grow thick as

Berries, in my native Town –


My Basket holds - just - Firmaments -

Those - dangle easy - on my arm,

But smaller bundles - Cram.


I designed and knit the circular lace shawl. It was knit with Jaggerspun Zephyr, a merino/silk blend.
