what warmth might be

ring of fire

A fire burning. 



Colors of Autumn.

Love. Anticipation?

A dream of a Blanket.

I have changed the way I store cloth and thread.  I used to sort by colors,  now I sort by warm and cool colors. And it is funny which colors end up in which pile depending on my sense of them when I sort them.

A ring.  The birth of a season.  A became autumn.


maybe, by lamp light

It was late, and I thought, oh, I could just patch the pillow.  I do that a lot.  Stitch small cloth to pillows.  That it a great old floral isn't it?  A jungle of joyous growth.  A wild  beast could live there.

As I recall, I had the same thought here.

old beast becoming one with season

Cloth as place.

Anyway, here we are again.

a sense of warmth in late October

Still no hard freeze, some late indigo and marigolds anticipating some warmth  today.

  2. Marigolds! One of my first favorites as a kid, still always has a place in my garden.
    The A feels to me like it’s held safe by infinity and radiating outward.

    Your colors today are just delicious, and that large floral behind the A is amazing, and that little flame stitch that you do is my favorite. I haven’t been following you for as long as some of the others so if it has a name, I’ve missed it and would appreciate knowing what you call it. I need to start embroidering more.

    “Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns.”
    George Eliot

    We have had snow for 3 mornings in a row. Nothing that really sticks but so pretty with the fall colors. My two favorite seasons blended together. Love your color!

    It’s so true about mood and color perception!Realizing that I do that as well with my clothing choices. I think the Beast will be happy there.❤️

    The colours in the north of Ontario are spectacular. Almost neon reds and oranges. The hills are blazing with colour at the moment.
    Fall has a wonderful sense of drawing inwards, cooking yummy soups, squirrel time…gathering thoughts for winter.
