Oh, gosh, thanks! Just swell to see this. Was away from home/cloth all day, but thought on dots all day. Can't tell you how much good it's done to be playing with all of this, even when it's only in my thoughts. & your beast piece- no adequate words for how much your beasts sing to me, with their centering strong & steady spirits.

It does! When I realized that I was playing, for playing's sake, I thought of you, of course!

You've got me thinking about new pillows, too- ours are quite worn, too, not to mention lumpy and bumpy. Will be happy to see what your creative and detailed mind stitches together.

Still wishing for more stars, this is how Saturday night was spent. From post-dinner until almost midnight. Blurry eyed, but going. Just filling the sky, scattering here, then there. No plan.
