We are here. I made my first Dot for 2023. I put it on my Bird Robe. It is a thought catcher, this robe. For the record.
That's it. Coffee next. Thank you for all your kind comments yesterday.
My goal for this year. Keep it simple.
And a dot is always a way to begin.
simple… the moon is just a big dot! happy new year!
That’s it, simple enough…
every day a new beginning … may your 2023 be full of quiet joys
that would be good enough
Best wishes for a 2023 that makes your heart and soul sing Jude. Thank you, I love journeying with you!
thanks for joining me…
Happy start to this New Year! Closing the day out with your blog, may all days forward be simply filled! Enjoy!
Thank you for inspiring me last year…. I don’t quilt anymore… it’s all spirit cloth.. my needle has become as important to me as my fountain pens… and like so many others your You Tubes help me center myself into my sewing work/joy. Happy New Year… wishing you serenity.
What a sweet note, thank you.
Dots…a lil dab will do ya 🙂
Have a dotty fun time.
The smallest mark…
Thank you! I winer what form this robe will will take if I can stitch on it for many more years. I wonder what form I will take?
Happy New Year, Jude. One dot at a time!
AND who’s counting?
Best wishes for the new year, Jude.
Your work inspired me into my own slow stitching, and I still rewatch those videos on Youtube for inspiration and some great hints and insights.
Thank you for sharing over the years. Brenda
years and years and years, whew! ha!
I see a moon dot!
Happy New Year Jude 💙✌🏼
the original dot
That dot holds a world in it. Happy New Year, Jude!
Backatcha. Dots can be so much!
I wonder….I am going to wander toward simpler as well this year – to the journey!
I am considering what form simple might take. Will it be more useful?
The steps after what if…., I wonder….. will show us.
What a wonderful way to start the new year…..seeing you and the first dot of the year……it made my heart smile!
it was simple!
a dot is useful. a single step on a long journey…………………………………………….. it’s expressive!
an indication of more to come:

(happy new year) jude! X
maybe dash could come next
Hello Jude…. Wishing you a fine year. Yes…let it be one which we all can look back on and say yes…2023 was a fine year! !
And thank you….
I look at your first dot and i know…you have started me off on a few dots that have turned into stepping stones…
Wishing all ragmates a gentler,kinder 2023.
a dotted line perhaps.
We can make it a fine year.
A new Year with peace and love for you and the world.
I am wondering, did you ever see Interstellar? It,s all about love.
Maybe you will like it and maybe you like the music from Hans Zimmer too. Most of this is playing in space maybe someone else could describe better. Sorry for my bad explanation
A great start to a new year!
small beginnings, we can do that.
I Love “Keep It Simple”
Best Plan I heard for the New Year!
I feel relief.
I don’t have any right to say but maybe you’re expecting too much from yourself. Don’t be too harsh for yourself. Sorry if I say anything wrong.
Good morning! Just finished my first cup of coffee, snuggled some cats and pondering the day a bit. So many possibilities… And dots…I recently pulled out my dot blanket. It needs some mending.
I just looked at that cloth I call The Deep Pool of thought, and thought DOT.
It’s a big one. 🙂 And the moon…those dots have been around for awhile.
if we look close enough everything will become dots
“Do you know why you should never trust atoms?”
“They make up everything!”
A dot a day keeps the doctor away!
I want to believe that
I like your motto. It is minimalistic. It is not so demanding at the start of the new year.
something do-able, even do nothing, that simple, ha!
Good morning Jude! Happy New Year!
I love your dot.
was a good start…
Best wishes for a simply good year!
Thanks for the inspiration shared.
and to you!
Jude, waking up to you on this first morning of the year; wonderful and full of hope!
May 2023 be filled with magic for you!
and I have no hangover!
Thank you so inspirational xx
Thank you for saying!
❤️ a new year and new beginnings ❤️
Happy New Year!
Wondering what this new year will have in store for all of us.
Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and joy filled year!
I’m hoping to do more stitching this year.
who knows, yay!
So wonderful to see your work first thing on this first day of 2023. May there be many more dots (and other forms)!
good morning. we begin again…
Hi Jude, Happy New Year
I had not seen the bird on your robe. Love it.
My word or words for this year Small Steps
Keeping it simple is a great plan.
An old chintz, I cut the birds from that. applique, and I named it the Bird Robe, but then I kept catching thoughts.
Every time I go to do something this year, I am going to ask myself, what if it could be simpler?
. There’s mine!
Happy New Year, Jude!
