Ok. Done, the year that is. It’s been interesting to say the least. Personally, very enlightening in very unexpected ways. I do not feel wiser, I simply feel kinder. Not by connecting. In some sort of standing back way. Perspective maybe. Letting folks be. Practicing forgiveness while realizing things cannot be unsaid. Except by saying more. Wondering how the art of dialog got lost. The last stitches on Alphabet Soup. The Wrap Stitch is actually, or has become my favorite […]
The last corner, Alphabet Soup, a turning point, became home for Nine for the Fire Inside. And I will throw this thing in the washer today. Funny how I could just go on this one, without saying much more. The cloth holds the going without saying. It has been a while since that is how it went. It’s almost 60 degrees here today. I can dry it outside. As you can see, we did not get any snow. This picture […]
I finished quilting G and I thought Getting There. And I am , if there is a there there. I did add the words Going and Guess but I will take pictures later. I have spent a lot of time in this chair over the last few months. I can say this cloth has officially become a Spirit Cloth. S could just be for that, without saying. And a Storycloth, a Story that might be told Someday (I love that […]
I love how, in it’s undoing, it holds the scraps of another’s undoing. And how that might build something unknowable but has a sense of appearing. Form. Just noticing, I guess, that everything is always disappearing. And at the same time, in the disappearing, making room for appearing. Sometimes revelation has nothing to do with what others may have already realized. Said. Told you even. It is quite personal. Not a contest to see who got there first. Learning […]
Here it is. You remember Q. Near U. Q was not finished. I added the big question. We all have questions. A child will have many. But the big one, it comes with age I think. As with quest, a question can change in scale over time. As will our sense of self in the scheme of things. big question I love the raw edge of a woven cloth. How it holds together and falls apart while you look. I […]
Sitting under it, to quilt. It kept me warm. And now, to close this year, just this. Just this. Fireside. Quilting. I am bumping into a lot of old what ifs on this one. Funny, how in some ways, a lot of my old questions are here. And they are just fine without answers. I will probably, mostly, hibernate… come December.
Z. Zebra, ZigZag , Zzzzz. Alphabet Soup will be ready to travel to its new home by year’s end. In whatever form it has taken by then. I am not exactly Zooming along, no, I am just going. Rather randomly as I bump into this and that. Honestly, it would hold together as it is now. And probably I could work on it anytime, even after I give it away. I am thinking of creating the ZigZag in the Double […]
First look this morning, the porch, looks like the wind really kicked up last night. Feeling happy that I managed to sleep deep enough not to notice. I set up a warm convenient corner for nighttime paper work, because mostly I don’t sleep through. Naturally, one thought follows another…
