I am reminded of my visits to the Joss House in Weaverville, CA..the roof is lovely and holds my visual of a temple with some lovely flowers all together. My morning visit to a reverent visual journey - thanks

They are so beautiful! Not a part of the landscape here on the west slope of the Rockies, but I seed them every year in my gardens and they are beautiful.

and bloom in the colors that make you who you are...this photo has a vibrancy only possible when several strong, bright, alive colors are juxtaposed.

Listening is like having you right here, sitting at table stitching and sharing process...works so well for me...look at the photos, and text, and sketches and then to take up cloth and thread, begin to stitch and listen. Wonderfully delightful to have you sitting here with me, stitching and sharing process and thoughts. My morning stitching begins with much delight today. Kristin

After snow yesterday, several inches...and icy cold...today the sun shines as cumulus clouds float by...birds singing. I look happily at the many, many plants that have not yet put out blooms..only a few iris were blooming and they are now toast....crazy, so the slow blooming ones are floating with the seasonal changes, just as I am..it is good to just float, enjoy and feel the air as things change, hear the birds and always have a piece of cloth and threaded needle in hand as I sit outside for a while and embrace the day.

wonderful, oh so fantastic is that collection of containers of buttons..little pieces of memory and history stashed together in a lidded container or scattered on a piece of cloth..just a treasure trove. Your words and stories as this change-making of place unfolds reads like the best of recorded records...mysterious, changes, readiness for the journey, the bits that all go together to make the little house on the hill your place to dream, and create and simply just be Grace....what a joyful gift it is to travel along with you in change. Namaste, Kristin

About a year ago I began to just put up one piece from a vast collection of possibilities created through the years. One give the opportunity to consider, to reflect, and to slowly walk with the stitching of a piece to completion...and my bonus is that the wall is plain, open and waiting for the next exploration. One by one that stash of thoughts on cloth is getting to a new, useful place. Love your starry wall! Kristin

this cloth speaks clearly to the moving through one phase to another with seamless attachment of thoughts and stitches as the flow of energy just goes easily along. This cloth speaks a loud wonderful voice to me. Kristin

Wonderful, simply fantastic photos. Yann did a great job showing his delightful wife outfitted in great sunglasses and the apron is the best...I love to wear an apron with pockets when I garden...never know when there is a seed pod to save or some newly ripened vegetable or fruit to tuck in for later. Pulling weeds it keeps my little special tools at hand. Glad you only play with the BB's idea....although a bikini could be fun. Kristin

Jude...many heart-felt thanks for the words today. I have written them in my journal, to consider, to stir creative thinking. So much pure delight and exploring of stitching comes when I stay touching the circle that comes here to read, to see, to feel the creating of works with cloth and thread..and words to get the heart beating faster...stitching tonight on some nice old soft cloth and considering the creative energy process as the needle moves in and out of the fabric.

How wonderful to share another month of special time with your mother , family and the land of your growing up. Your mother is a beautiful, fully giving, loving woman. Your visits to home are always good reading and touch me deeply - going home these days is to see brothers and their families, mother and dad have both passed on. So grateful for memories and stories and pictures. Happy Mother's Day, every day... Kristin

Rain and sun here yesterday, last night and this morning...no watering the growing things today - blessings! Lilac blossoms finally opening up..now the yard will be filled with the sweet fragrance. Sweet Woodruff and Bleeding Hearts are fully in bloom - spring brings so much delight and the fruit tree blossoms and strawberry blossoms foretell the fruit delights that will be enjoyed fresh and preserved for winter.

Wonderful photos, quotes and thoughts from you today. My cooking began as a very young girl, about age three, with lessons from my Norwegian Bestemor. She never used a measuring cup or spoon...so I just had to watch how much she poured into a bowl or pinched with her hands....she taught me to improvise, to imaging what would be the final result, and always to search the gardens around her home in Portland for vegetables and fruits to add to make something really special. We took the bus to the outskirts of town and picked buckets of berries to make pies, cakes and jams. What a fortunate child I was to stand beside her apron and learn the love of creating beautiful, healthy food for the table. Today in my seventies I still cook her way and do not measure and gather from my gardens fresh, lovely food most months of the year. Family blessings to pass on to my grandchildren. Kristin

What a lovely collage of intertwining places, people and thoughts...surely a time to sleep and dream and rest after a whirlwind week of such adventure..and I shall make an effort today to make that most delicious gnocchi dish for supper. Kristin

What is magical to me as I look at, take in and appreciate these small pieces is how they all have something that touches another piece, in some way. Each with their own intention, I see them calling out for a bit of what their neighbor is saying. So do enjoy seeing how you juxtapose pieces of your work...always I am enchanted by the "beasts" and stars and moons and suns come together in a related, cohesive picture of the story. Kristin
