What Magic has become

3 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

The Magic Cloth hangs in the warm room. It has become a base in a way. A design wall. A place to store smaller cloths in process. A shelter. A space to pin a small cloth as it becomes larger....

Craftsy Shop

To everyone’s frustration, I had my web site redesigned a few months ago and we have never been able to get the pdf download function to work. I’m not sure what to do about that. So, I finally decided to move my patterns to Craftsy as pdf downloads.  My shop is located here. They aren’t […]

Feeling Pulled across Moons

3 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Early. Looking. Later. Remembering how it came to be. And why. Pulled Across Moons is a good name I think. I like this one very much. And it is raining again. And then it will snow. And rain. And then...

6 AM The wood is dry and good. Especially when sleepy and actually always, placing a good piece of dry wood over the right coals, in just the right place is vital for a good fire to continue without interruption....

Cozy, woolly & perfect

Hazzah! My tied flannel quilt is done. I feel like I’ve gone backwards in my quilting journey.  But I don’t care. I’ve never done a proper tied quilt before. One night I got a bee in my bonnet and started searching the internet for dark cozy flannels when I stumbled across this kit plus an […]

Creative and Personal Change and Growth

Illustration: Paul Klee, 1935. Change and growth can often be seen as the engine and result of impetus, change being the engine, growth being the result. Like throwing a pebble into still water, the pebble can be seen as the change, whilst the ripples can be seen as the growth from that point where the pebble entered the water. Show More Summary

How it went at midnight

So. Yes, at this point we are both "under the weather". Which is big at this point. The under and the weather. The roof is leaking. The sky is falling. The wind almost picked up Chicken as he went...

Sun again but not for long, so enjoyed it today. From inside though, because the Man has caught a cold and I am the soup-maker. Odds are I will catch it too. As close as we are to one another...

Three steps at a time

3 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Not really thrilled with more Rain, but still continuing. Slow down! Take one step at a time. I remember that being said, so much, in my younger days. As I charged forward. I think that was good advice, but now...

After a little rain (2)

3 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

It was more than a little rain really. About this much. I have all my empty jars outside. I water the houseplants with rain water. Not too much rain, but enough. For some, a little too much. Like a fallen...

After a little rain

Sun. Thank you. Sunrise always seems more colored in the context of winter. Against the grey of it. Like a warm bath. All the leaves are down. And brown. Soon they will turn to dust. But I have a little...

This is one I finished during our virtual retreat as well. It will be going to my friend Matt's little girl. I think it came out really nice. it's my own design, no pattern.

Virtual Retreat

Our online quilt group had a virtual retreat over the weekend. We all picked things we wanted to finish and then our progress as we went along. I was able to finish this fall quilt and I think it came out nice. This is one I'll be trying to sell. I included a couple of close ups so the colors are easier to see. Came out very nice.
