Well, I've wrangled and argued with the sun this morning in trying to take photos. The colors don't seem quite true, or there are shadows, or there is a too blue cast (never thought I'd say that!). It's clear that I'm not going to win. We're looking forward to a... Continue reading

You've got me curious, I'll go in search of that one. I only read the first two, for children's lit classes in college…they weren't my cup of tea. I wish I was in the water!

Ha! At least I was only at the post office!

(everything is wonky here on the screen…maybe the humidity is attacking your computer, too?) Lovely misty thoughts here. Love mist, it's there, but not. It softens things. Smiling at your mom memory. So sorry about the ick factor.

Worked on the ship for this piece yesterday, and will again today. Usually, there isn't a defined idea in mind at the beginning, but with this one, there are some feelings and images at the edges of my mind that I'd like to get onto the cloth. It's proving harder... Continue reading

I think the same thing when I look at the clouds, thank you.

Ha. Keeping things as icy as possible.

So glad to have helped!

Yikes! That would've thrown me for the interview. We had a friend who went on a job interview, wearing a new suit, that he forgot to take the tags on the sleeve off of!

Maybe I should do something like this whenever there's a creative block?

Maybe it was the Cindy in me, crying out for attention? Ha!

I remember when the boys were small, people said it took 2x as many days for kids to recover from traveling. I think it's true for me now!

I've done the t-shirt thing, but never the bottom half…especially with the pocket hanging off my backside…hopefully I gave someone a good laugh.

Thanks, Velma, stitching houses often feels very cozy.

I don't think I was quite all back yesterday. While standing in line at the post office, Moon and I noticed that nothing interesting was happening (usually post office trips involve at least one odd story). Then I looked down, and realized that not only did I have my skirt... Continue reading

I love seeing new places, too.

As a kid I spent hours staring at clouds with friends…it was good to remember that. Thanks!

Thanks! Warm storms remind me of the few summers we lived in the midwest.
