I love your over&overs...each one somewhat similar, yet also unique. Love the threadbeads, colors and movement of this one. And of course the birds. LOve the birds :)

I learned young how to curse like a sailor! I'm good at putting it aside though. I've always used 'rats' too...like Charlie Brown & the Peanuts gang :) Love the cloth.

Oh this is very good! Wouldn't it be a kick to let them each add a stitch or more on this chair...a group collaboration, like confetti!!

(((sigh))) Cindy, there is so much deepness of your heart here. The beautiful work of Mo and your additions to be held within...art all of it. Looks like strong mending totems to me.

True, although for me it does feel like falling...but pushed is something to consider. And let it go...yes I am always working on that, but can't see/hear the words without the Frozen song coming to mind!! Ugh!!

Oh...and the second page has given me an idea for the comfort cloth, something I was fiddling with yesterday, but that wasn't feeling 'right' in the moment. And of course, as a teacher, the process is a very important part of it all. It would be very fine to see an exhibit with the pieces in process or photos of the process. I heard an NPR story about the exhibit of Mary Casset's pastels. Imagine. An exhibit about the possibilities, the tools of the trade...talk about freeing your mind, this is taking it way back to simple. And people were so excited to see them. http://www.npr.org/2014/09/23/350650986/now-thats-an-artifact-see-mary-cassatts-pastels-at-the-national-gallery

I too have been thinking of my mother, maybe because the anniversary of her passing is coming up and we just celebrated Rosh Hashanah and we did that with her in her last week, the whole family. But it is a bit more than that. I have been seeing some of the ways she was not strong and feel she is sending me lessons to learn from that. I agree with the ideas of nurturing what feeds, holds, saves us. I think it is a more conscience, intentional feeding to nurture our joys. At least for me. I have been embracing all things that have and still do fill me, yes fill me with joy (music, a certain necklace and all it stands for, memories of people & places). I also believe it has something to do with the aging process when all that other stuff, the more unpleasant stuff) begins to fall away.

You capture Tay so perfectly in the drawing, like I am looking right at her.

Great idea. I always liked them for indoors too...keeps down on the bug bites! I think Mr. Ed introduced me to them first!

After all these years, I still can't explain to others what here is like. You did that, and we all understood...because that thread connects us all. I tire of hearing the difference between 'real' and online friends, for nothing could feel 'realer' than what goes on here, and in all of our blog homes. I am deeply grateful for you, for all of us. Many, many a day you all have kept me afloat. I too will miss the stories. I would have loved to be there for the music with her. (((hugs)))

Fall & Spring are my favorites. Just a bit cooler in the early am and evening. Otherwise, low 90's today. I think I forgot what seasons are! Love that Twinkle-cat yawn! And my heart beats for that blue fabric, which is resting with Twinkle. Enjoy the fall-ness!
Toggle Commented Sep 24, 2014 on some things to cheer about at handstories
I have a thing for old windows. I always thought it would be nice to have one of those 'exterior' many panes (window like) doors for an interior door...that or a dutch door (love those). A bit cooler mornings and evenings...but 92 today. So, still hot.

This blue..rain? Tears? Neither? Love the idea of becoming as it is so open-ended and filled with possibility.

Grace, I love the treasures Tay is bringing you. So much rain, I can't even imagine that right now. Dry and dusty here, invites asthma. Be safe.

On way to work, the man in a kilt walking his greyhound. See him often on this city street. This intrigues me.

Tracy I'm in SO CA too. Day 6 of over 100. Big puffy humid clouds rim the Valley. We hope for some rain. Air conditioners couldn't keep up today, so very hot at work in the classroom...79 degrees with sticky crying little ones. Long day.

My heart is with you Cindy. I'm glad he was able to go to her. Take care.

I love it...just sew anyway, eh?! I remember the days of ballgames, not with such a great view though!
