I'm hoping this will all be a funny story we tell each other in the future. Thanks, Tracey.

Thanks, it all feels better today, there was a shift last night to thinking of it all as an adventure. We'll see if it lasts until Friday-ha.

That book really is fun and thought inspiring. So enjoyed reading your process in creating the project- molding it to fit your thoughts and for ease. I've got some leftover Greed around here. If I find it I'll send it your way. Looks like another cool day, hallelujah.

This has me imagining a conversation between between the thread & cloth, "you missed a spot over here, I'm feeling saggy" "I'm coming" "no rush, slow down, tell me where you've seen…" "I've been over in the indigo cotton next door, let me introduce you..." & someday I would love to hear about your cloth history, the jobs, who taught you what, etc…the pre-Spirit Cloth days.

Someone suggested writing or drawing how I'm feeling these days . . . this is what came out. I think this was the longest hardest week our house has ever had. All of us coping with our stress in discordant non-complementary ways. We did go to see the new Star... Continue reading

Yum! Yes, it's just swell. Went for a walk around Seward Park, breezes blowing in the open doors while we pack. It's a terrible & wonderful stone all at once.

It came today, at least for a while. A great reprieve.

I've always liked the idea of star dust.

No one talked about this piece of it all. It is good to hear others' stories.

Love that thunky-pop when they seal. Canning always feels like an Accomplishment.

The star cloth slowly grows. Some days more than others. It's been unusually hot here. Yesterday hottest day of the year, and today is going to try and out do it. We go along, preparing for, bracing ourselves for Blue's being gone. A few more days. Words are hard and... Continue reading

Your thoughts are like walking stitches. Thinking that the lines- woven, stitched or drawn are where the connections are made, where things touch & hold.

I am done it from it, & heading to Ohio & Rhode Island next week. Hoping the good news is that I'll be acclimated. Cold pickles might help.
