Storm brewing. Rushed down to drop my car for inspection, to a nearby mechanic, his business RUSH Auto, ha. The right place, never fails if you get there at the crack of dawn. First mechanic that has never tried to cheat me in some way. Gosh, I so appreciate that. Just that, is mostly all I ask these days. The last few days, challenging. Exhausted in so many ways. And the Soul-0, reminding me, just find a sunny spot when […]

Yesterday this site went down. Today I am sitting in a pile of loose yesterdays. This is the drawing I used as a card when I first started to sell in my shop. Cannot remember how long ago it was. I like it as a message to say from my home to yours. I look at it today. Drawn before stitching days. 1965? It seems stitched. What if? And here is the photo that inspired the “snow scratched” idea.

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.
The change of season has revealed the small basket feeder I hung on the fence in early spring. I forgot it was there. The summer growth had woven another basket around it. It became a nest. It’s the time of year for seeing through. I remind myself that design is a kind of mending. This cloth, The Mother-Ring, is so thin, unstable, worn, stained, reworked, holding but useful maybe only for looking. I made some changes. Folded the edge in […]
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 […]
