the mending room has no walls to contain or constrain the mending.

you would really love a kotatsu- some of my favorite memories as a child in Japan revolve around sitting at one in the winter. it is a low table over a cut-out in the floor which is heated. hence, you sit on the floor with your legs dangling below and the table has a thick blanket covering to keep the heat in. so cozy... Jan will know. i think her house has this. even Richard too. i'd build one here but alas...it's SoCal... i salvaged a scrap from your box to mend that quilt. its a 40's quilt and i think the pattern and scrap might be too! perfect.

here we are fond of saying that "we all are living our own separate realities". this thought is more present than ever. we continue, perhaps with more awareness than before. sleep is good. and then awakening. continuing on...

doing something over and over-repeating on a progressive path is something i love to do. even after all the ribbon making i can still approach it earnestly and with an eye to improve it each time. even in some slight almost unnoticeable way. i notice it. i know what was learned or gained. i love thin cloth. it allows for so much. variety of cloth. that's what i love too.

yes, same here. the practice of it. i have come to not only expecting the bumps in the road, but actually enjoying them in the moment. seeing what i can make of them. this doesn't mean i don't prepare and just wing it (heheh..no political reference here) but when things go in another direction i have enough experience and temperament behind me to work out a solution. every time now when i prepare for a show i think back on all those bumps in the road and wonder what they will look like this time...
