It’s beautiful. I’m glad you are only getting enough to enjoy it. I remember the quiet.

Love the muted colors and tones in that. And the light in your room there. I recommend making tomato and basil soup for canning when the tomatoes are plentiful. I’m still enjoying mine from about 7 months ago. But sadly down to the last 3 quarts. But tomato seeds sprouted yesterday!

Authenticity is a a deep running river. It can be felt and observed over time. Here, we had BigWinds last night. Big Sur is on fire again. Oh Mo…

Sounds like you found a path through/in. I wonder how many conversations have taken place over that old stone wall?

that foggy wood is mesmerizing! here, the rain lifted finally and the sky is blue. we are very thankful for all the rain, cold weather and snowpack. Iron lion Zion, iron lion Zion, iron lion Zion... let's all form a circle and enter the New Year!

sweet family days are precious. and the tomatoes! everytime i go out to consider pulling out the last of the summer tomato vines they cough up another handful-thereby putting off the inevitable! and their taste is super concentrated and delicious even though they are quite small compared to summer tomatoes.

i'm anxiously waiting for my ginko trees to turn color. it will be a bit of a wait here yet. but lots of persimmons are ripening- good thing the new DIL loves them too!

the moon has been glorious lately. I can roll over in bed in the wee hours and see it set out my upstairs window. so comforting. and stitching some things has been a sanctuary in itself in recent days... i once came across a downed tree in the woods near Yosemite that had become a haven for tens of thousands of ladybugs. it was so beautiful and interesting i kept going back there every day just to watch!

the Redding fires...i dread seeing all the burn areas next time i'm up that way. hospitals...yes, here in the US. hard to fathom it all. somehow i keep missing your blog so adding it into my sidebar so i and others may more regularly visit you here. not paper, but a reorganizing of sorts. maybe not an indulgence, but a treasury of memories...

softening is a word i needed to hear today. so thanks for that. regarding composition, my intention is to make a piece feel good to me, to find a balance in it, adding or subtracting until the feeling emerges or rises. i think this is why i am not so interested in traditional quilting. i don't like having a plan all laid out, i like to use intuition to let it evolve. usually, that means looking at it over a number of days, even just glances at it from the other side of the room. kind of like a version of self, getting outside of myself to gain another perspective.

Every day I’m looking at my new to me old loom. My goal is to finish rehabbing it and get a small warp on it to test it out. By the end of the year. There. I said it.
