This morning, Everything Is So Fragile resting in a Nest of Days...
I used a scratched up worn photo filter to make it look the way it feels. A big cloth is a place to rest, in so many ways.
A bit difficult, hard to get this picture myself but I wanted to catch the current fashion statement. The good news is I can almost fully bend my knees and get back to yoga.
For those of you who knew her,
I moved what was still useful, from the broken blue bottle, into the garden. It holds things I think she might like and shelters near the oregano,
which has begun to flower and attract bees.
Michelle has been so present for the last couple months…this comforts me…the blue glass
I love that I have this blue glass
The way things, people touch each other…the way things fit together and belong, as if they were always like that. So glad your knees are working better and Michelle has been much on my mind recently. I really like this honoring remembrance for her. (((hugs)))
One big crazy puzzle! ❤
The beasts and their wild threads, patchwork moons, mending & unmended knees… I was weepy before seeing the bottle. oxo
I was a bit weepy today
My cloth is resting…
And, today, I am slowly working through a list of other things…like a knee thing. (very mild, but Oy!)
So happy to hear yours in mending well!
Michelle’s bottle—-the ritual of precious things.
It’s just always something, which I guess is better than nothing
resting in motion is how i feel lately. hovering in place. loved the reminder of michelle, and all of us, as a vessel. grateful for your mended knee. x
I really missed stretching
how the moons in “the nest of days” echo those in “everything is so fragile”
and how the bottle, though broken, still holds story
It really seems to belong there…like the bottle in the earth.
So much to comment on…yes, we do what we can, learn to use the body part differently just the way you used the broken bottle differently! I love that. We have to do so much differently now. As always I so appreciate the way you think Jude.
We even need to think differently!
We do what we can. When we can’t, we rest. You continue to demonstrate that. Thank you for your faithfulness.
Resting is an art in itself…
How do you get your brows and pinks? Are they natural fugitive dyes?
Well a fugitive dye disappears, so no. All these browns were dyed with black walnut which is a substantive dye, requiring no mordant. The pinks were simply produced by walnut overdyes on other warm commercially dyed cloth in my piles of scrap and recycled cloth.
Knees are precious. Glad yours are feeling better.
Really a big deal, knees.
Beautiful quilt Jude 🌷thanks .. the work is amazing 😇
The work never ends!😁
Oh i like the moon design on your knee, with a wide circle around it.
Hah, moons everywhere :- )
And REALLY like the red peeking through on The Nest of Days!
Ha, I didn’t notice the moon on my knee.
Peekaboo has to be my favorite game…
