How a day moved through

Wood stacked. There was even sweeping! And I managed to expand the silk lining. Now I can begin "walking" around the center. The stitch in the center is settling in. As it does. Eventually the ripple ripens. As the layers...

Early Quiet

Cold. Waiting for a wood dump which will take up most of the day. Stacking. Thinking mostly about how what I stitch (make)(do) catches thought without having to say so. Thinking how what we do simply reflects how things move...

Frosting

The cold moved in once again. Lots of rain and then a bit of snow and then a deep freeze. We are left with a coating of ice crystals. Some solid ice on paths and roads. There is more than...

some thing.

I've nothing much today. Except this accidental photo... which is interesting as a composition. Cloth and clay(the floor) and wood. When we move I would like to play with clay. Some things just stay in the back of your mind....

I just continue

The other side of Holding Pattern is being lined (as mentioned here...) with this cloth and then hand dyed vintage silk, patching as I go. Patching, quilting, patching. Rocking. Silk stitched closely and carefully to cotton. They come together as...

Quilting

I'm quilting the center panel on the Holding Pattern cloth. I quilt with intention. The intention of holding. And not being limited by that. Intention must not be static. I'm gathering memories and I am remembering this. (Q is for.....

How it seems to continue...

Sometimes. What we want need needs rethinking. Confusion continues as we rethink so many things here. Mostly triggered by aging and what that might mean in terms of comfort and challenge. We speak to each other about how being two.....

Like Magic

Poof. The snow disappeared. Another morning, near 60 degrees. By this evening, another deep freeze. It's amazing that sometimes science is used as a near antonym for magic. To me they are nearly the same. More about that another day...

Just Floating There

Odd winter morning. All warm and steamy as the temperatures rose to almost 50 overnight, melting snow and filling the air with moisture. Warm enough. No fires burning. Soul-o is out before sunrise. Probably we will have just enough time...

A Stack of Possibilities

We want to need to relocate. Eventually. I've been confused. I could spend a lot of time talking about that. But Nah. I made a video this morning. While straightening up. I didn't bother to get the tripod. It's a...

Hey

Hey,... hey rhymes with A. A is for alphabet and and I'm back to it A-gain. A. A new start. And A is for AUDIO. audio link if you see no player above I've been using You Tube here...

Dance

That's what balance is. A dance, right? And the music is all that is. I'm design mending. Mending her foundation. So it might support all she might become. It doesn't matter how you start, it matters how well you mange...

Because

Snow Beings. Remember? Stacked selves. Because, really. It's a balancing act. And there were a few loose dyed patches. Just a joyful exercise in alignment. So cold and windy here it might be hard to keep your head on straight....

Winter Whispers

It's not the snow really. The snow was ok. Even though we are snowed in. That is always beautiful. It's the ongoing cold. It was a lot of work managing the day yesterday. The boiler (which we use mainly in...

Big snow Big cold

Blizzard watch. Woke to snow. Will most likely sleep to snow. Big wind coming. Power up and down. Just keeping warm. Used the last walnut and pom dye. Just to use it. Before I shut the studio till spring. Yesterday's...

Rarely

Rarely do I post the words of others. Today I couldn't find words for why I couldn't find words. Why I find myself stepping away from trying. Considering, reconsidering path. I caught this and it seemed easier for me...

First 9 in January

Nine, reconsidering nine(lives)patch as a basket, or a bowl even. Today nine is like a bowl of cherries. And it is still very cold, but not as cold, so Yay! A nine patch is a basket and that is why...

OK

Slept early, woke early, burned the oatmeal, had better results the 2nd time around, built 2 fires even though I hadn't planned to, watched the sunrise with Soul-o because the man is sleeping in (nothing new). This is an old...

The Basket and the Thread

It snowed not too much. Even though it snowed all day. Slow snow. Now bigger cold is coming. I remain focused on shelter. I woke early and built a fire in the studio stove. Even though I planned not to....
