There are so many things being missed these days.
Toggle Commented yesterday on heaven's heart at handstories
Wanted to say how much I love your photo of the ripples & the echoes in stitch, and your peace filled spirit.

Yes, yes, yes... and I'm thinking that the violence had little to do with the planned peaceful protests. That some saw it as an opportunity to take advantage of the situation and to escalate the issues. We're under curfew again now, not that there was anywhere to go.

I don't know what vocabulary goes through my process, but thank you for your very kind words.

Oh, Dana, thank you, today I wasn't able to stitch at all. Just wandering about the house aimlessly, wondering how to prepare for the unknown?

Dear Mo, thank you, they just put out the alarm for the city again...
Toggle Commented yesterday on heaven's heart at handstories
I worked on it all day, and can hardly remember doing it. So much is broken.

A way to hold myself together, if nothing else.
Toggle Commented 2 days ago on heaven's heart at handstories
I wondered how it would go, whether it would work, but they just melted together, thankfully.

It just stopped raining, I can hear a bird & there was a small rabbit in the yard. Thanks so much, Deb.

Thank you, Cheryl, if only a needle & thread could fix things.

Yesterday morning I awoke to the rain. Everyone was still sleeping. Flinging open the studio window, I stood there listening, smelling and hearing the low rumble on its way. (The photo is a screen shot from the video I took when the thunder and lightning were coming one after another.)... Continue reading

I'm so glad to be able to validate your good thoughts! I love the melting the happens when colors and cloth meet in the right way- much of what I understand about this is thanks to Jude's sharing. oxo

Your moon and circular stitching fit beautifully onto the cloth. Seeing it makes me wonder if your lavender wisps could also be made of stitch, or if thin lavender cloths, also with raw edges, stitched with the blues of the base would melt into the cloth as well? So many possibilities with those wonderful blue squares...I'm sure, with your wealth of skills, that you have many of your own.

Thanks, Els, that button just showed up on the table while stitching. It wanted to be used!

Thanks, Mo, trying to see the light!
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on stars & stuff at handstories
They are an attempt at channeling the wonder stars fill me with, thank you for your kind words.

I'm stitching lightning now. It's all a blur.
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on stars & stuff at handstories
Some of the time there is a strange kind of peace within these unsettling days. Thank you, Dana.

When the forgetfulness first started, a friend said it was probably menopause coming on. I asked her if memory skills would come back? She said no, but that I would stop caring. She was right, mostly!
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on stars & stuff at handstories
I used a single strand of DMC floss for the entire thing.
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on Binding Story at handstories
Thanks, Beth. As you know, I did call it finished, knowing that I can alway go back and add more lines or stars. I just had that very same discussion with a friend about books yesterday!
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on Binding Story at handstories
It could be considered a design element. Now I'm imagining all of the holes filled in with cloth or spider weavings.

Looking through a pile of starts, I found this, and couldn't remember much about it. Old blog posts reminded me that it was going to be a star blanket, with stars stitched daily onto it, started sometime in 2017. Oh, well. A couple of collages, not my usual thing to... Continue reading
