The round woodpile is bigger this year, we got better at it, one big pile.
And under the deck is also full.
I almost wanted to build a fire this morning... the chill is delicious though. I chose two robes instead. I want to make a wool robe. I think I will. Actually a robe for each season sounds good. But then, by combining two robes, well that works too, and there is less. And more when needed.
If I make a few more A's , keep going, I might have enough to go Around.
What a satisfying stack of wood to take you into the cold season! and some charming A’s for back-to-school. A is for Autumn.
Yes, Autumn, finally, ahhh.
Nothing more deliciously warm than a wood fire, but the robes will work for now. Cheers!
At one point both!
A robe for every season is more in a good way- a sense of ceremony.
Yes. If even imagined.
yay fall finally !!!!
At least for the moment!
Ah, and those rocks in the background! Do you ever go out to sit on them for a while and just watch and listen to nature?
I do, and so does soul-o
I like the idea of making many A’s… And go Around And Around!
Stitching by the pool today, the weather is gorgeous, no more humidity!
yeah a great change in atmosphere…
J is a big believer of ‘practicing’…to get better, to gain comfort in a skill (usually he is telling me this about instrument playing or singing. ha). I tend to get bored of the trying, but it is good to know there is another way (to Not get bored!)
I get bored of not getting anywhere so i keep going. ha!
Yes! Carry on!
When I first stumbled upon you, Jude, your art…I was taken in by that magnificent silk patch robe. I thought it so very beautiful. I think a robe for each season would be lovely…a celebratory welcome of sorts. And a wool-patch robe, well, how cozy.
And yes, that is a big pile of wood!
I am working appliqué at present, wool on linen. Lovely to work.
Yoga at sunrise these days, on the back deck.
wool is nice, how the edges hold themselves…
Making a fire…..i’m so happy the heat is gone must not think of heating the house
But aaah strange times
it will be back, the dragon….
A-round, like your woodpile 😉
Not chill enough for a fire here, certainly, but enough to feel cool and not perspire! 😅
I pulled my robe out of hiding yesterday, looked at it, thought, well, that’s not too bad ( I’d gotten disenchanted w it & put it away) ….
a break is always a refresher.
I love your stitching 🙂 I like to stitch myself, but when I do it, it just looks like I’ve made a half hearted attempt at something, and I give up. Maybe I just need to keep going.
Keep going!!! 🤓👏🧵🪡
absolutely, skill is simply the time it takes. different for everyone I think… we keep at it if we love it. I think it is true of everything. or maybe we come to love it if we keep at it. what if it is both?
So well said, Jude.
thank you all – yes maybe it is both. X
