This will come off the wall today. For growth line stitching. And a sharpie, yes, not romantic, but permanent. I use them. Mostly because I had them and then because they bring out something in me. I have added Tools and Materials to the Glossary so I might talk about what is useful to me, update my approach since it has been so long since I created my first workshop where I talked about all that. Soon, but I am […]
Away we go for a bit. Some visiting, because it is not snowing and warm. OK. A little Nine. One inch squares. Nine as Time passes. Maybe yesterday, today and tomorrow. Maybe a blink of an eye. Here today, gone, well no, maybe transformed tomorrow. Today’s dot is a reminder of fullness. Car travel, dots are small and easy, I can continue. Needle , thread, a few loose scraps. Maybe a pencil and a scrap of paper. Small cloth. Thought […]
Sometimes, 9, Nine, is like a note to self. Most of the time actually. I like to make one a day. Ninedujour Series. They have turned into a way to journal in cloth. I happened upon a box of tiny puzzle pieces, leftover from Small Cloth class, so they have taken smaller form these past days. Today A can be for temporary Alignment. Like this is a temporary page, only the nine will actually hold together. For a while at […]
This is Chip. Dale is off scouting for the last of the chickpeas. I suppose today, I will make the sign. Welcome to the Chipmunk Garden. Settle into how it will be here. Here are 9 Magnolia petals, at various stages of change. The blossoms were short lived but I remember them clearly. With joy.
Mantra Sanskrit Derived from the word think. Thought catching then. Repeating the sense of this floating through time. Maybe at least 9 times. This one, time is more obviously not standing still. And perhaps the nine, more obviously a kind of personal logic, to hold something. I am not a Buddhist. I am trying to remind myself. about Just Going. Maybe I am a NINE-ist. Clever,,, but really, I don’t like to call myself anything. Labels divide us.
Hello. Pinhead. How I feel sometimes when I cannot understand. It is raining a lot and nothing is leaking. And there are gutters, leading the water to the garden. I need to rig up a rain barrel as well. A dark day yet light enough for stitching, reading, drawing, even growing. We will paint the ceiling white. This weekend. I think we can sleep out here now. There are 3 large skylights. Enough light on the darkest of days, not […]
This is Woody. We met on the first day here. These two doves do everything together. Maybe I should rename this blog Spirit Birds. I am boiling up the black walnuts today. They have been soaking since last fall. Frozen on and off for months, thawed and smelling spicy. The dyepo(e)ts stay out on the porch most of the time. Gotta move them anyway. We need an outside fire pit. Should think about that again. But, in terms of frame, […]
Just Nine 3″ squares. Because I spent most of rainy yesterday replenishing my basket of puzzle pieces. I do this mostly when I feel puzzled. No plan really. Just the potential for a solution. Maybe just a nine patch. And then, I pressed them to a big cloth, Heal, just to look at them. You know how cloth sticks to cloth sometimes, like a felt board. I liked them there and now they are pinned. Because they started to fall […]
