When we moved here, this hill was hidden by fallen trees, brush and a lack of care. This is the view from the kitchen area, near the washing machine which we will move to the basement so we can make this a sitting/eating area. The water connection will not cost too much, there is already plumbing down there. The dryer, which is rarely used when it is above freezing, will be moved too but maybe not connected for now. Some […]
All together. Now, just for the touching. What If(?) a series is just the answers to a string of questions. A string is a thread really… So Then, What If(?) we are home when everyone else is home. A puzzle where every stray piece has found a place. There is a cloth called HOME. And the story is on TypePad. So much work to do to move things to a safe place.
Yesterday we travelled to get our first vaccine. It was easy and swift. Today my arm is a bit sore. I am not one for getting vaccines. I have never had a flu shot or any other shot as far as I might remember. I , we all, have choices in life. Mostly we act on our beliefs about health and well being, which we often accept as our “knowledge” through experience. This is what we do. We are what […]
Some old nine patch done Skitch Skatch style, maybe from Small Cloth class? Can’t remember. Another layer of sketch made it #5 in the Just Home series. I kind of like how this looks like an architectural drawing. So What If (?) I dye over the Sketch? Skye. I think I might be finding a new path here. And this OLD Home might become a series in itself. First off it might be important to say that I patched before I […]
Yesterday was just a hilarious day. It’s Turkey Time. They were everywhere. And noisy. ( I posted a little movie on Instagram because it is easy to do that over there.) That stone wall is not the end of the property. The edge of an original parcel. But this lot has 5 of them. Sectioned by these stone markers. The long ago owner had plans to sell them separately. These pieces were not buildable because of the stone and the […]
Here we are. Almost the middle of April. Big moon coming. And I have a new design wall out on the porch. I painted it white last summer. The porch is my studio now for as long as it is warm enough. I am thinking I will simply work on the Just Home series through April. No other agenda. I am organizing my cloth thoughts for May when I will be able to talk and film outside. And begin again. […]
Just Home, nursing a spider bite and an injured knee. Neither terribly serious but bothersome. I did a bit of patching over this sketch, Skitch Skatch. As I continued, I thought about how much the character of a cloth affects how you can work with it. That’s true of everything , even people. But back to cloth then, many times materials are rejected because I cannot work with them. Or then techniques might be avoided because what I have on […]
Second Spring here. So I can say Spring in the Valley again. And allergies. It’s been very dry. It’s going to rain for a few days, that usually helps. Not a lot of thoughts here except I think I will begin with green. And then, that stray red thread, a reminder of the fire inside. I thought that when I saw it. I think I will leave it beneath what ever gets stitched there. It is often not noticed, but […]
