New Rug

20 minutes agoHobbies / Needlework : Yarn Miracle

I’ve been adding small rugs every now and then to see how the cats feel about them. I’m experimenting with the small ones before I invest in large ones (to see what kind hold up best with all the claws). The cardboard box in the dining room is Ellie’s souvenir of the new air conditioner. […]

Not the first time

There have been rivers of words. Listen to the River Cloth, one example, posts here and here. Cloth whispering. Looking back, even the posts were rivers of words. Anyway, this morning by lamplight. Simpler perhaps. Words. Flowing. I ask myself...

Pretty Corners Vol. 11

I love my humble little home office. Don't get me wrong, I hate the carpet! There are a ton of things that I would change if I had time, energy and a plan. I think that a big part of the reason why I don't do anything about sprucing up my office is because I know that any room that is overflowing with yarn is already a winner. Show More Summary


Black Eye Gallery is pleased to announce the August 2017 exhibition Liminal by Armando Chant Liminal builds an interest with the potential for engagement that exists with the relationship between imagery and objects that sit within an in-between state of emergence and realisation.

A shift in Alignment

Yesterday's change. Sometimes it is realized by passing by a few times. Not by theory but by being in it. She seems more universal now. Less pushy and dominant. Less self-ish. This form attracts me. I talked about it a...

WIP Wednesday - Tartan-esque Truss Shawl

The top photo up there was the listing shot I used a few years back for a small batch of Blue Label fingering weight yarn in a colourway I had called "Too Tartan". I don't really feel like the colourway name makes any sense because it's not really an amped up version of Tartan at all. Show More Summary

Passing Through

Passing by the worktable in the studio on my way to the hill that used to be a garden. Because that's where I'll be today. Moving some stray leftover bricks. To patch an old path. Eye Woman seems a bit...


So Flow. Over time, the force behind the thing that goes through it. The bigger thread. When I stitched the Greening House (from yesterday) I pieced the bottom part of the house and then appliqued it, and the roof to...

Extra Special Election

Alabama’s Special Election Primary is today. In case you haven’t been keeping up, we’re voting on candidates to fill Attorney General Sessions’ seat and finish his term. Ellie and I strolled across the street to do our Civic Duty. It was lonely in there. It looked like mine was the fourth name on the voter […]


I have been taking a few days off. Well, I’ve been sort of taking a few days off – I think they only feel like days off because I’m not riding really far, and putting up a tent and taking … Continue reading ?

Rainy Morning

I like rainy mornings best when I don’t have to be anywhere. Paws in my coffee.


I’ve not got the vocabulary for this much disgrace. I’ve been thinking a lot about how hate is something that is taught.

So Blue

Ellie and I got hair cuts this week. Ellie also had her ends dyed blue. It’s subtle but it’s there. haha We think pink next time.

For some reason...

Seemingly for no apparent reason, I haven't a lot of words. And since I'm not that big on words, it seems like no words. Everything is just slow. This one is going, but what to say eludes me. Except I...

flower crowns

Well, I had every intention to take photos of me wearing the Byron Bay Cardigan. However, I had surgery on my foot on Wednesday and can't put weight on it for at least a week. Knitting is taking place. Lots and lots of knitting. Just no modeling. Show More Summary


I don’t know if you know this about me, but I am pretty much a coward. I spend a lot of time worrying, and a lot of time being afraid, though I am afraid of regular things, I think. I … Continue reading ?

Simple Little Things

Caught in little things. Today, time off from "fixer-uppering". Was going to paint the porch ceiling but I'm exhausted. It might look like I am doing the same thing over and over but I am evaluating a new free seaming...

Keeping a Roof Over our Heads

Rather basic to all of us, yes? Like the moon. Yesterday there were 3 squares and three triangles. Today there is a community. Now where are those 3 circles? Home is still on my mind. As well as building. Looking...

definitely not meatballs

So, I was in the kitchen over the weekend, and I wanted to make something resembling the Joy balls from the Conscious Cleanse book. No baking. Just mixing. Unfortunately, I didn't have all of the ingredients in the kitchen. I decided to get a little creative and start adding things to my food processor. Show More Summary
