[words i wrote on the 20th and forgot to publish.  the deep red was the color of the un-faded side of grace’s rug.]

some words that won’t let me forget them.
:a stitch a day:
one stitch.
i’m run ragged these past several months.  but feeling good.  accomplishing some things.  some things that have been on the plate since childhood.  accomplishing seems like the wrong word, but it’s right.
every moment becomes filled with some thing that pops up right before it arrives.  cooking cleaning washing caring for…
i’ve been stitching in my dreams.  weaving and piecing cloth in there…  deep red and indigo blues.
the only solos i can escape to do, have to be outside activities where i can become :hidden:
watering tending digging mixing…
the compost was done enough on sunday.  we mixed it with the sandy soil we dug up.  it smells rich.  just can’t get enough of the smell.

questioned if it needed more stitching.  but oh well…  it’s gonna be what it IS.
pinned backing cloth on.
maybe some moments to stitch it on today.
it’s going to cousin for a bookmark.  she loves to read mystery novels.


this brass bowl is small.  a lot of liquid evaporated.  added more pecan hulls and water.  took this photo morning of the 7th.


no words yet just a feeling…

~inspired by jude’s wizard bag.~

i had some thing’s to write about it yesterday
but today, they are gone.

i haven’t carried a handbag for some years now, since all my bags and shoes accidentally were thrown away during a move.
i think i am barely recovering from the horror of it.

so this will be my first true handbag in over 4 years or so.
will be replacing my black jansport from time to time.

i  did my best not to copy, but i’m afraid i didn’t do too good a job in that area.  everything i love about wizard bag design, i had/have to include…  which is pretty much everything.

started on winter solstice 2010.

knock, knock

“down the rabbit hole”

these photos are so dark.  it’s just dark here.  maybe if the sun comes out i will try again tomorrow.
she shifted.  morphed.

stands still
still going slow and steady.
