from the same cloth... Grace asked yesterday about the long cloth, and I said I would tell more about it. I don't usually plan a project. I'm more random with what I do. But for this one, after placing cloth on cloth, I saw in my mind what was emerging,... Continue reading

Hi Grace, the cloth on the left is a self-portrait. I called it "from the same cloth". I'll write more about it tomorrow. I was thinking I would finish it and fold it over one of the handle bags to make a front and back. Thanks for asking...

I've got lots of bits and pieces to work with, collected over the past year or so, when I couldn't really figure out what to do with them. I think I'll make handle bags... Continue reading

there were challenging moments today. big chunks of time hijacked by someone else's solvable crises of their own making. firmly reminding them, over and over, that it was theirs to fix. rejecting their demand to get in my car immediately to drive 3-hours back to the city. a tough love...

My my dad is an artist My earliest memories growing up are of all the ways he made art and how that was simply what made our family what it was. From 1965 - 1985, he had a side job as the cartoonist for our local newspaper. His cartoons appeared... Continue reading

I know... I've been off the blogging grid for awhile, reminded of that every month when Typepad has shown up on my credit card statement, and wondering if this was finally the time to give it up, or if it was time to start again. Things have been complicated for... Continue reading

I gasped when I read what happened, then read it out loud to my guy, who also gasped. We both understand the unforgiving nature of indigo. And then our conversation went something like this: "I can So relate to this. I've had a tantrum or two" said I "Yes. You. Have." Said he "I'm sure stress added to it" said I "(Silence)" from his corner of the room... xo

That makes me smile. I saved my mom's voicemails too! I couldn't get a new phone until someone could show me how to save them. :-)

I still remember the first time I watched you cut a work in progress and how I gasped! I really didn't think you would do it.

I doubt that anyone looking at me ever said, "hey! she looks stuck!". But in the past couple of years, it is how I felt. Stuck. Repeating the same things over and over, willing a fresh start. Running in place. Frustrated with the same outcomes. No forward movement. Stuck. It's... Continue reading
