Love how this heart-filled cloth is evolving. It is really beautiful Cindy. It has a lot of heart to it (and I mean that seriously). Interesting that the heart that stands alone also looks so different from the others in color and shape. Mmm...

It is also good to REMEMBER we have choices in matters of the heart. That's where I always get hung up. I can relate to your sunset :( J. says all that smoke and ash is drifting over to Greenland, covering the snow and attracting the sun to melt that snow faster. Sounds awful to me.

Oh this made me chuckle in a sympathetic way of course. Reminded me of that old Seinfeld episode where Elaine is flagged at the doctors office. I didn't know they really DO that!! lol PS I had store-bought blackberries in my breakfast yogurt (bet yours had more flavor ;) )

Another vote over here for 'good enough'. This pieces has evolved beautifully and as it stands now is so richly layered in love and story...just like you my friend. A fantastic testament to your stitching and mothering.

Cindy~ Through the magic of the web...I read the April 2011 piece, which I had missed the first go-around (no wonder at that it was a very hard time in my life)...now I am here reading the Mama you were in Oct. 2011...but I had also just read this current piece earlier this morning, so I am loving how it all comes together and falls into place in some way, some time. http://www.quietrev.com/portraits/alexandra-rosas-2/

I love that you choose to knit while you melt! That is one beautiful moon pic. I bet I could met...or raise you some on crankiness level some days. but, most recently we've been a bit cooler, thankfully.

Love seeing the whole of of your cloth word jumble - word search! What fun that it is in no order and you can just float around looking. Love green moth there :)

You work magic with sails Cindy. Love the whitecaps on the water. I'm off in a few minutes to donate some old t-shirt sheets with foot-holes to the local animal shelter. I figure in the summer, even the critters may enjoy a sheet rather than a blanket (plus I've already donated all of the blankets I had! haha)

I am always struck by how comfortable you are with the sea. An old friendship you two share.

By the time I get here, you must be feeling more settled. I love the front of your building!

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!

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.
