I knew chickens didn't lay in winter, but didn't know it was about the light, thought it was the cold. We all need some kind of hibernation now & then..

blue holds a lot for me, and the moon.

I switched out the harem cloth behind the moon, filling in the space with some pale indigo, and added some midnight orbits and stars. Much better, I think. Years ago, we had a tiny room enlarged, so that it could become our bedroom. When it came time to choose the... Continue reading

I actually feel kind of sad that we've missed winter (remind me of this if March gets ugly!). Spring is my least favorite season- because of allergies.
Maybe I should've turned that knot into an anchor? It's almost as big as the boat!
Thank you, Els, I like to imagine bobbing along in it.
Well, that was simple…thanks! It's a Hedgehog cactus- I love that!
Oh, the dramatics…I've got them going on all over the place. Did I ever write about my drama moment when Blue was a week old?

Do you know the name of the cactus? This is a tiny potted one that someone gave me a couple of years ago. I'm so thrilled that I haven't killed it yet AND that it still blooms now & then.
I hope when I find that better way that I remember it!

Twinkle continues her couch frolicking. Which includes attacking anything left on it. She pulled out every last thread from... Continue reading

The moon is such a great thing to play with.

Thanks, Tracey, I love doing it so teeny tiny, but don't think I could handle the big loom!

Thanks, today I was working on it some more & was holding it up to the window for a bit, when I took it down my neighbor & her 1 1/2 yr old were staring at me, wondering what I was up to? Ha.

I'll be curious to see what you come up with, I wonder how the thin thread would be strong enough to hold the fabric? The edges are my favorite color- twilight blue, thanks.

Weaving till my eyes blurred into a new booklet. It's just a smidge bigger than a quarter. Stitching a found scrap onto "uncertainty". The dark side. A quick play with paint. Continue reading
