Some of you have seen a draft of this post, something collapsed this morning. trying to patch things back together.
Halloween, a beautiful warm day, leaves falling like rain. I just let it pass, thoughtfully.
Today, after a full night of rain, fog. And way warm. We expect 70 degress most of the week. Spooky really.
I glanced at the cloth I now call Spin, on the wall, catching site of the leaf birds forming. Wanting so much to be like them. Just taken by the wind and learning on the way.
No stitching today.
There is a mouse in the kitchen.
It’s 38 F and raining, maybe first frost tomorrow morning (It’s in the forecast, first time I’ve ever seen that!). I looked for alphabet noodles recently (haven’t found them yet)…thinking alphabet soup would be fun.
I just got some!
Loving the leaf birds. And Soul-O.
he surely loves that basket
My brain is in a new place these days…a better one but I still dread this time next week. Your leaf birds help me stay grounded . HA
tell me about it…
It does seem that the world is all in loose pieces. Some folks trying to patch things together, but they really don’t know how to go about it. Maybe because it is so immense and the patches are worn and can’t hold together anymore.
Keep your needle threaded…😎
The leaf birds <3
I love the see-through effect of the trees in this season.
the view closes some kind of gap in its opening up.
(((Jude))) we live in a topsy turvey world, it’s really cold here in the Land Down Under this week & it’s nearly summer!
yes, the leafbirds
yes to change
The leafy birds, first to tell us they are on their way.
Canada geese on the wing, leaving for your warmer climes.
Warm here too, some of the birds stay all winter now.
the birds seem really confused honestly.
Worked in the gardens today, trimming bamboo, after some quiet stitching this morning.
You have a mouse, and I’m fighting fire ants who have been marching into the kitchen, attracted to the cat food.
fire ants would be new to me.
Fire ants totally and completely suck. My sympathies! I’d much rather have mice in the house. Which we do. They keep the old tomcats active.
Love the bird leaves.
I love how form might become undone
November 1 is a such a upside down day. It’s an eye opener. A page turner. It reads weird. I’ve been quiet. Been stitching, looking, and sitting daily with my “V” prayer flag, flopping in the breeze, for next week’s results. Quite terrifying. Hopeful! 🌊🌬️☮️
Strange , all of it, even the weather.
…”taken by the wind and learning on the way.” Air is my favorite of the elemental forces so this phrase caught my imagination. And the leaf bird calling to the leaves to join in the winter migration. The yellow-ish leaf on the left is magical! Seems to be silk and quiet ethereal. Peace and ease to all.
yes, silk, I was working with locally dyed silk there. and now I am here, maybe continue with what has been dyed here. air yes, wind, breath, all spinning together.
Peace to you, Jude.
and you and everyone
Love to see your seasons change in opposition to mine – we are in spring now in Melbourne, Australia & a very wet one. Autumn is so beautiful, my favourite season. Thank you for your sharing.
usually mine too, but some things are off this year.
Looking good your alphabet soup quilt 💙
I guess M will be for mouse 🙂
