A day at the beach. I could watch it forever. Nothing seems to matter. It all washes away. K commented, "If I ever want to make you happy, I just have to take you to the ocean." "I know." Some wave-like stitching. Continue reading

For a change of pace, in those rare moments when I've had enough blue, some "Golden Raspberry" battlings by Hobbledehoy are being spun. One bobbin is full, another to go, and then an attempt at bettering my two-plying skills. Summer is winding down, the rains are supposed to come today,... Continue reading

It has been the strangest summer I can remember…not in a bad way, just all kinds of weird. Yes, the stitching has begun!

Tell Old Man Crow & yourself thank you for the ideas….I'll tell Moon that he's lucky it's only four weeks instead of a whole year!

I like the square cutting idea- ha! Distraction does appear to be the best medicine, but I'm getting worn out…three weeks to go…. Am going to try the car AC, thanks, Tracey.

We have tried the antihistamine, but not the blow dryer, going to see if the neighbor's have one we can borrow. Thanks, deanna.

Blue wants blue. No designs, no tie-dye, just plain, heavy, and long enough. Ok, then. A sea of blue it will be. (P.S. One very frustrated thirteen year old and his mama (who he is making nuts) would greatly appreciate any advice regarding how to stop the itchiness under his... Continue reading

DITTO! But I suppose it's good for all of us…especially Her!

I will always be grateful to jude for getting me over my rainbow issues.

It's kind of amazing what a little shimmer and stitch can do.

Your gray and greens go so well together, autumn is definitely coming. I just posted about the fires, too. Today is better, but my head still hurts from the smoke.

The moon is growing, along with its rainbow rings. Yesterday the Seattle skies were filled with smoke from the nearby wildfires. Sending out thoughts for the three fire fighters who died last week. Continue reading

What Mo said, "quivering", exactly…during those really hot days when the light shakes near the ground. & your rock advice is very good, I still forget sometimes to let the cloth BE.

I was slow to act on the arm because it wasn't swollen & I remembered the bill from his stitches in June…bad mom. I did ask a neighbor to look at it & he thought the same thing (justifying, justifying…) Glad your story had a happier ending. When I take my glasses/contacts off, the sky is pretty blurry, can barely see the moon, but city lights look like fireworks (a glass of wine helps with this!)

Thank you, I was thinking he was just being dramatic, until the next day when I saw him carrying his arm everywhere. Sad thing is I did the same thing to Blue when he was 9. & thanks for the vote of confidence on the moon.

I love that phrase, too. These lazy days I feel I'm waxing gibbous. He should be fine, three small fractures at wrist and elbow, thanks.

I don't know what happened, but I'm just going to go with it. The real moon is lumped and bumped, right? As is my Moon, too. The moral of his story? Clean your bedroom, or at least the floor, so that you don't trip over stray things, and then have... Continue reading

Beach stones kept on the porch, the storm winds were just starting to pick up while I was taking the photo.

I'd love to know your corn relish recipe. I keep cooking up a bunch of ears, & throwing kernels on everything all week long. (& I thought of another one…Delicious Enough For Gorr Having Imagined Joy!)
