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 […]
I can say we got enough rain. It is cool and damp and these are new to me. New is good at the moment, I have slipped into a strange kind of boredom. It took months but the porch ceiling is finally painted, we don’t care about fancy or neat, could have left the plywood bare, but this makes it lighter, softly.

Now just knowing that I kept them or meant to keep them seems like enough. I can close my eyes and picture them quite clearly. A lot of things are becoming like that. And then somethings seem […]
A. A is for Alphabet. When I worked in the textile industry, I began as a handweaver, weaving samples. Samples were necessary to show customers what pattern changes would look like. Designers created a group of of cloth constructions and woven patterns as ideas, presented them to the salesforce. And then the “salesfolks” would work with their customers and their customers would buy sample yardage to make up into sample garments and if they remained interested they might usually change […]
