2008 ? ! I am really sorting through the past, trying desperately to open some space in my brain for newness. I came across this article from way back, Artful Blogging Magazine which has since been retired. Back when blogging was just blossoming. New. I was there. So were a lot of you. I kept the pages because they seem antique. Maybe I will use them to paint on. Or something. Over the years I have disengaged with being published […]
Yesterday. I thought about season. How much Joy there really is in it for me. Here, the blues that have nothing to do with sad. Dyeing, for me, is always a question. I haven’t really spent time enough to say I know. But then time flies and knowing by going fills you with at least the story of how it goes. Mostly silk this time, and still many colors. This morning, again. And Wordpress will not display my video […]
The shift has taken hold. The Indigo has gone to seed. I will make some free seed available in early spring. At this point I have way more than I will need. It seems to reseed here anyway. At least enough for my use. A tomato star. Most of the tomato plants have a weird mold on the leaves. But fruiting continues. I wish I had a greenhouse. But I might be able to do a hoop house. That is […]
My idea of focus is really beginning to broaden. I stray further but I accept simply a sense that I will return. But the Alphabet Quilt needs attention. A whole month has gone by and the end of the year will be here before we know it, My sense of time has diminished and it seem all a big blur, allergies are not helping. Unfortunately a lot of my mornings have been spent blocking stalkers and spam. There were 772 […]
Arising From an Inner Warmth I called it that. I still call it that. I like the word arising. A is for that, as opposed to Suddenly. Arising is slow. Slower, As if it has been long enough to remember willing it. Wanting it. I will add added this word to the glossary. I have begun finishing up some old pieces in the Frame of Mind Series. At one time I had planned a showing. That path has […]
Sometimes, 9, Nine, is like a note to self. Most of the time actually. I like to make one a day. Ninedujour Series. They have turned into a way to journal in cloth. I happened upon a box of tiny puzzle pieces, leftover from Small Cloth class, so they have taken smaller form these past days. Today A can be for temporary Alignment. Like this is a temporary page, only the nine will actually hold together. For a while at […]
Imagine if it was possible to actually use every last scrap here, how big a cloth would it be? How tiny my scraps of self are becoming. Enough for lunch, everyday for a while now. One way or another, I will attempt to use most of what is here in terms of piles of cloth. It amazes me that I mostly did not buy any of it. It is amazing how things can be given new life. Sometimes by just […]
The cloth I call Alphabet Soup is about to be spread out on the big round table so i can get a feel for it. Soul-o was not around when I working on this one so long ago. He seems to want to connect. S is for snake but I could add Soul-o too. Bring it into the present.
