Many thanks, Els! Yep, Dad was a tough & rough cookie, but I did learn some things.

Dawn and sunset can be magical places, thanks, Barbara.

Thank you, Liz, the tiniest bit of color can make such a difference, right? Sometimes I exhaust myself just with ideas!

After stitching myself into a mental corner on a a couple of pieces yesterday, I thought a straight-forward tree might help to shake things loose. Using Deb's moody cloth for the sky should have been a hot pink flag of what was to come. I have an idea for a... Continue reading

You're sweet to suggest this, Liz, but I'm not a dyer at heart. I only do it once or twice a year trying to make enough for my own use & wrapping cloths for the shop.

Oh, I'm so glad for you! June has never been a favorite month for me, until now!

They flew so close to us we ducked one time! Tina's pretty purples seem to add more glow. I'm hoping with the hot weather next week to dye more tiny moons.

You never know when you might need to debate the pros & cons, good to be prepared! That they were even able to have a graduation made it such a joyful event. I'm hoping that deeper gratitude is a lasting effect of the last year.

Yes, Mo, with moons and ravens to carry the stories!

Thank you, Marti... I do love the word gumption! Holding onto June did keep me going some days, that and holding my breath.

Loving all of the beautiful soft pinks (and blues, and greens) in your last posts... Those bee photos! Caring has to come first, I think- about the child and what's being taught.

Things are good. We've had a very welcomed turn-around after, like so many others, a kind of tough year. A year ago this month, K's workplace of fifteen years laid off a third of the employees, him included. As the company struggled due to COVID, we saw it coming, but... Continue reading

Thank you, Nancy. Tomorrow is the graduation. I wonder how teary I'll be? It seems that it will be easier when Moon goes- he'll be closer, and it's the second letting go. Or will it be harder because it's the last? We'll see...

Thank you, Barbara. Tattered and shattered are good words, and fractured. His eyes...the moment he was born, and I pulled him up to me, he LOOKED at me with those eyes & I thought, "Oh, you Are ____ Moon!" (Moon is his middle name)

Yes is such a good thing to feel after this year!

Somedays I still see the seven year old, others I hardly recognize him. Don't tell him that I posted these!

You and this circle are a blessing, dear Marti, thank you.

Thanks, Liz, things and time are such a blur right now...with big shifts happening for all of us over the next few months.

It's all about moons lately... the moon and my Moon. Our Moon is wrapping up his senior year of high school. Each day is a "Last Something-or-Other" it seems. Tomorrow is his last in-person class in the school building, then a few more days of on-line, a couple of on-line... Continue reading
