Sharing quilts

Sometimes our heart & soul are stitched into the quilts we make.  It’s a little bit uncomfortable to share the story behind the quilt. What inspired it. Or what we were thinking about as we were making it. I have a little mini quilt show hanging at our church at the moment.  My first ever […]

Mindfulness, Nature and Observation

Illustration: Photograph by the author, 2014. Recently I was sitting beside some running water and watching the current running through some river weed. I could see the water flowing through the weed and as it did so it was leaving air...Show More Summary


Seems I need to blog more often like I used to. I go from no posts to several at one time. Here's just a picture of Azeroth my grand dog as he's getting bigger. Love that little dog. The second one is when we'd had him about a month....Show More Summary


Here are the last two blooming. A white rose and a gerber daisy. It's a determined little plant. I think I have it getting a little too much sun so each day it falls over looking half dead then overnight it pops right back up again. it's a proven fighter so I didn't bother moving it.


Here is an Amarillys (spelling is way wrong) that I planted a few years ago and never bloomed till now. I had forgotten about the bulb and planted some princess flowers which are now 6 feet high. Just noticed last week this popped up under it. Show More Summary


I'm busy at work finishing up items so I can go on an actual vacation. No more visiting the ex's family or mad dash somewhere. So I've been pruning up the bushes around the house and thought I'd post pictures of some that are starting to bloom. Show More Summary

Holes and patches of Green

The view to the sea is slowly filled with green every year in the month of May. Inspired by how it goes, I did the same. Not a Mom style green, but more of a me green (thinking a bit...

About time

4 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Sorting always Uncovers things. Still Undoing stacks of cloth. I made this table cloth for Mom. Hand pieced on a commuter train. I gave it to her for Mother's day. Long ago. She liked checks. And I don't really, not...

Spring Doings

Deck maintenance was a must this spring. A lot of things got out off when Mom was ill. In addition to the grunge, this space became cluttered as well. The old bench got a coat of paint to slow the...

Two and Across

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Turned out a bit wing shaped, but I am not done with the edge yet I don't think. I was thinking about tails, how expressive they are. How sometimes they can tell a bit of a story. And then a...

A Wanderer's Tail

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

I've been mostly outside. Still considering composition and story. Still with a swollen thumb, mostly pinning, but managed to add a tail. Which brought the beast closer to me. Forward. And a modification to the straight edge, which seemed too...

Big basket

I am only going to keep the fabric that fits in this basket. It's pretty big. We found it yesterday.

April into May

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Seems we got most of the April showers in two dreary drippy days, but now the green haze has arrived. Many tiny greens have formed. Soul-o is out this morning, UnDoing his winter sense of the world. Cautious yet delighted....

I finally finished something

Woohoo! I finished something!  How about that?  On top of that it is an unusually gorgeous day in the Pacific Northwest.  I am getting tired of take photos of quilts on our shed. But I just haven’t found any other location that works as well.  I need an old barn like this for photo shoots. […]

Somewhere quiet miracles

I have posted about Wendy's work before. It was Wendy Golden-Levitt and her work with children, and really the children themselves that inspired me to begin the Magic Feather Project. For some time leading up to it all, cloths were....

Cutting through NoWhere

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

After a little more talking to myself. I cut through some confusion. I didn't want to do this. I needed to. To open a personal space not committed to either side. Because it seemed 2 ways. I think there is...

Just talking to myself

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

I keep folding this in half. It wants to be a long cloth. Thinking how (miles from) NoWhere might turn into SomeWhere simply by being there. I am drifting into something.

Moment to Moment

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

I have been outside all day. Thinking and working with earth. At a loss for words. Exhausted. No stitching because I hurt my hand yesterday doing the same thing. My thumb. The swelling seems to be going down now. I...
