Little Squares

39 minutes agoHobbies / Needlework : Spirit Cloth

Building corners, now anticipating changes in direction. This is how many little 1.75" squares I have left from what was prepared a while back. I'm running out of the white/light colored ones. That might be an opportunity for something. This...

Eventually

Eventually, last night, the big deep breath came. There was room enough for that. And I jotted down, for my own reference............ replace (undo) instant with eventual. the old fashioned version of how it might go.......... Hold Pattern(aka...

november knitcrate

Okay. I'm going to move on to some of my finished objects (And yes! I have some! ????) but I really wanted to mention what was in November Knitcrate Artisan Crate first. It truly is a great day when I see this blue box in my mail delivery! I was so excited to see the word cozy as soon as I opened the box. Show More Summary

Adding Space.

Space. Funny how, for me, the concept, or even the word Space, conjures something big. Or at least bigger than what was previously considered. Even though space could be small. These new squares are larger. 3 x the size of...

A Day Unlike any Other...

(re)Considering the nature of our days. 7 AM Rain. Lamplight. direct link to audio if you see no player above. The sun just came out. I've turned the comments off for a bit as I wander into a place with...

Holding Pattern within the Context of Time

Considering that. Considering Time as a Pattern. While considering Context as a point of view. All the while considering Patchwork, of course. Considering Patchwork as Lifework. The cloth came off the wall this morning. I'm ready to continue. But today...

before november

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and friends on my last post. Things are progressing with all of the boys and healing is happening. Praise the Lord. Andrew had the drain and all of the stitches removed and I gave him his last Lovenox shot! (YIPPEE!) He will start PT next Monday. Show More Summary

Before Dawn

These marks are following me. Or me them.(click the dots to go back to a related post, if you don't remember) Or maybe this is just a map of yesterdays, todays and tomorrows. Not beginnings or endings, just in betweens....

How I Imagine it might Go

Amazing how time flies. It's been 2 years since I stared this. Maybe it is time to lose linear time. How is it that I always return to it? It's on the wall. Only for today. I hung it quickly....

Suddenly and not so suddenly...

Good Morning... All of these are muslin. Except the one on the right. Some old silk. Silk and wool dye deeper. I'll dye some wool for weaving. I'm considering, imagining silk for the back of Holding Pattern. I think I...

Forgetfulness

The walnuts are in two pots on the wood stove for about a month now. I think. Soaking for quite a while and then heated on and off as fires allowed and then every day for the last week or...

Just Sayin’

I had a Doug Jones sticker on the car before The Washington Post sent me an alert on Thursday. You can get yours here.

Revelations of Eye Woman Continued...

I'm riding a tangent. I was actually rooting around for some plain muslin for Holding Pattern. To see if there was any. I was on my hands and knees for a while. Searching low shelves. I got up to stretch....

Going Going

I got up today (I’d say this morning if I believed for a second that 4:30am was morning) and staggered back to the airport, where I was seated in the chair that they’ve engraved my name in, I’m here so … Continue reading ?

Looking at November

Sometimes when the leaves thin, the sun rises on the rail. It only lasts a few seconds but it is marvelous to find myself just there, just then. With a camera. In November leaves are everywhere. Morning over November over...

A Stray Head

Just found a stray head in the scrap basket. Good thing because my regular head is nowhere to be found. And I love this scrap of woven cloth. The weave like like waves. It's been in the walnut pot...

Election Day: Vote for the Helpers

Our special election isn’t until December 12, but I know there are a lot of people who do have the opportunity to go to the polls today. If you have that chance, please go. Figure out the kind candidates. Notice the thoughtful candidates. Identify the candidates who will pick people over party. Look for the […]

Tuesday morning looking.

Time seems to move more slowly these past days. I think it is my breathing. There was no appropriate wall space. And then I was reminded that this is not a wall cloth. This is a human wrapping cloth. So...

Just Monday and a few things to do

It's a low light day. Looking back up to the sleeping loft. Left the light on because I'll be up there making less of it today. Just a bed. Sheets, pillows. Blankets. And a lamp. That could be enough. (That's...

Hooking

Our Museum has a Hooked Rug exhibition up right now and offered a rug hooking class taught by Anne Norvell to go with it. Ellie and I were completely on board with that. The class was to make a little pumpkin rug – just big enough to get the feel for what might be a […]
