The romantic, optimistic part of me comes from my Mom. She was the happy, Winnie the Poo, Pie in the Sky person in the room. Always reminding me that everything is going to be all right, that folks are basically good, that tomorrow is another day. Probably I didn’t really buy a lot of what she was selling all the time, but seriously, Pie Eyes can make the difference in a day sometimes. Good medicine. And my ,my, could she […]
I am happy to see so many bees. I look forward to next year’s garden now that I am a bit more familiar with what will grow here. Rain barrels are the next project. And maybe an ark… just sayin’… The red line is drawn. Stitched. Pressed into the cloth, It seems the beginning of a basket. I sense so many here already. And the line came through. I had spread it on the floor, to look. Covered in cat […]
To become what? What if we just let go? To envision is not really an end. But a way. To keep moving. While I move through this one, with a bit of Liquid Applique, Freedom is resting on Heal. Again, it seems to belong there. I drew some lines. While remembering many Small Journeys that brought me here.
There were thoughts not caught. But there was paper. The day began with paper. Not just any paper. A loose sheet of paper. Loose Leaf paper. A Loose Page with nothing on it. But wait. Squares. This is a good start I thought. Yes. There was also a lapse in Memory. I left the stove on after making coffee for a long time. I do this a lot. I suppose when thoughts are too loose they might be useless. Anyway. after […]
Earth House. Just Home #7. What if (?) this one became a lot bigger. Grew to be a base for all the others? I’m just asking though, imagining how that could happen. Sometimes, well probably most of the time, thinking is doing. I remind myself too that doing is sometimes less about thinking. But that kind of doing is different than the doing that catches thoughts. And that has lot to do with what it is for. I think. I […]
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.
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 […]
