Yes! The first photo was in the morning & the 2nd in the afternoon, which seems to often have a blue cast to the light. I'm sure there's some science involved, but I just enjoy the cerulean tint.

Hi Laurie! Thank you so much for your very sweet words, so glad you've found connection here. I've done big blanket sized projects over the years, it's nice to balance the seemingly endlessness of them with the small stitchings. Have fun exploring your own dabblings.

At singing last week we warmed up with a round of each part singing a different song: "row, row, row your boat", "are you sleeping?" and "3 blind mice" (which creeps me out & could be replaced with "twinkle, twinkle little star")…anyhow, it was very pretty & fun!

Rained all night long. Listened and listened. Now getting lost in these stars, dots, glimmers. I may be stitching myself into a black hole. (Just looked up the phrase "black hole" & the term "theoretical mass" came up, but my bleary eyes read "theoretical mess." Yep.) Continue reading
