i'm dreaming of rain on the roof. I love that sound so much. right now enjoying the scented flowers all night so will wait for the rain-hopefully. boys to men...here too. but loving them now and the memories we share too. wonderful!

words are so strong. overuse overwhelms me and my own instinct to see what something might mean to me.

i like that edge that "goes" from back to front. and the bite is the price of freedom!

i have tried that but the points where the thread wraps around the frame resist the dye and leave marks which i try to avoid. these are for cutting for hand sewing so maybe it really doesn't matter in the end... but now have about 25 skeins dyed and drying...phew. so far so good...

yes, i wind into a skein and loosely tie in 4 places each before dyeing. then tie 8-10 skeins together before dyeing. lots of patience- especially with the very fine silk. the cotton is easier. lots of dips and lots of rinses. the desire to tangle is strong!

picked the first batch of poms yesterday (so early!!) and you know what that means...golds and greens. and the squirrels and I are sharing the ginkgo nuts. and by sharing I mean he drops the detritus on my head while I sit below. I get a few... a neighborly invite sounds nice- like a mark of time- as summer and fall collide.

that picture of the girls -even brought back early memories of my own. playing on the rocky beach in the PNW -Fox Island and the many little coves and shelters in the Puget Sound. the sound of the waves lapping at the rocky beach and the music made as the sea receded over them. over and over. I went back a couple of years ago just to look and listen again. it was the same. glad you felt better by evening...

living cloth... the real deal. tension creates texture- more to consider. more life-like. and no. a machine can't do that.

freeing things up as inspired by you. night skies, daytime moons, life eclipsed by random gunshot...i am so sorry to hear this. just so sorry...processing tragedy takes time. be gentle and patient with yourself.
