They are all great & interesting! Four is fun & bursting with excitement, just like I imagine the event will be. I love the jellyfish-like bubbles of six.

Room for playing, yes, being able to just be, without a plan, so important & necessary for the spirit. Maybe it's a flying fish? I see both in it, & a sail, too, of course. So glad it's cooled down some. I wasn't ready for summer.

You know I think of you a lot in all of this, Tracey! Yes, there's plenty to do. I smiled through the whole evening & even had a good time. We will survive!

That's where I'd like to be & hope to get to.

Yesterday I thought of all that you said during our lovely afternoon & knowing how you've blossomed so beautifully through it all gives me comfort. I do think of the extra time I might have with excitement. ox

Thanks, Kathy. Everyone seems to live through it & come out happy in the end, so I'm holding on to that.

Ms. Grace, How I Wish I could be like you. I really thought I would be & am hoping that self will still show up. Know that I AM very glad he's capable & mostly prepared (still needs some work in the laundry/bathing department) & I'm not weeping in front of him!. am Trying to do the right things (out loud at least). Not that he'd notice, he's too busy with his LIFE, or rolling his eyes at me. ha. Pie's done & it smells good. ox

That starry blue cloth is in both boys' baby quilts. It was a gift from K. for Christmas 1997, when I was mid-way through the pregnancy with Blue. Today is Blue's 18th birthday. It will probably be the last birthday we spend with him for a while, as he is... Continue reading

This one really is a magic trick. Even watching you do it, stitch by stitch, the effect appears "poof". & I really like the 3-dimensionality of it.

Thanks, Deb, yes, sharing makes the light brighter. You've got me thinking about the word "finding".

Between the stars & the velvet, things are quite glittery here, thanks, Jacqui.

Mo, I wish we could sail out & meet in the middle of the sea, under the stars, of course.

"Where the stars fly wild with the rainbow" When I see other artists' work full of pain and angst, expressing the outrage of injustice, I admire them, and wonder . . . Why don't I stitch about the hard stuff…the troubled childhood, the dark decade? I wonder if I'm not... Continue reading

I'm glad you have so such lovely connections to the NW & weaving. I have many found memories from Whidbey Island. K and I went to a b&b there a lot (before boys!). Thank you for visiting.

Stitching at Blue's baseball game yesterday. An exciting game for the team, they were playing in a minor league stadium, with a professional announcer, their photos on the big screen, electronic scoreboard…the whole shebang. That's Blue pitching out there. I am not one of those cheerleader moms who yell all... Continue reading

Grandma Rosee loved Norman Rockwell & introduced him to me. I still have the big book she gave me of his work when I was in grade school.

That's great, so many people have no idea who she is. The PTA also bought a book about her for each of the students to take home and share with their families.
