(Apologies for yet another marathon post. Someday I'll get back to posting regularly and briefly.) Thinking about hills, again. A lifetime of thoughts and memories of them. Using Deb's threads to wind a story through... The front hill is from her dye pot, too. The sky is from a class... Continue reading

Me, too. I wonder if it's a distraction/procrastination technique? Your soup sounds delicious & your blanket looks so thick and cozy. Are you doing garter stitch with purling for the whole thing?! And wondering how Lola is doing?

Unbelievable, sometimes all of it.
Love back! It really has been amazing and full of treasures, including a certain weekend with you! I wonder where my first bird beast is?
My boys would probably call me an overwhelming heart! Thank you Nancy, you and the rest of this circle have kept me centered through so much in the last decade.
Oh, Marti, your way with words makes me feel so much more, thank you.
There is always a big smile on my face when you call me that!

"Moonset" The edge of a napkin dyed by Deb made for a fabulous wave (& her purple cloth, too). So many nightmares- dead bodies, assaults, old jobs. Things are busy, mostly in my head, and computer time is more limited these days. It seems that by the time K. is... Continue reading

Sending love to you and Lola, hoping you both are taking care. Wishing moments of peace for Widget, so that you have them too! Hope you found the browns you need, if not, send word.

Thank you! I'm starting to think of ferries as good friends.

Quirk is good! And I really like the round fullness of your boats. Will look forward to hearing more about this class, it looked interesting.

She called out her name with the last stitch!

I'm sorry to hear this, Mo. I wonder why?
Toggle Commented Feb 18, 2021 on Making days at handstories
Oh, no! So sorry, Dee. Sadly, I think that I'm done with overseas sales- just too expensive and stressful.

My mom's sister was Aunt Jean, too! She is a talented seamstress. I was also taught the goal of blending, but often ended up with a mound of thread with my attempts!

I hear you about the eyes and patience! More practice is definitely needed over here, but Jude's was much more meditative than the stressful satin stitch I grew up using.

I started with an "Awww...!" at the photo of Widget, and ended with a laugh out loud over your thoughts about the morning. Good luck up there!

There was a tiny bit of practicing of Jude's wrapped bar stitch on the rooftop with Deb's thread (matching her sky cloth above), while remembering the tedious work of trying to do the short and long satin stitch that Grandma used to fill spaces. Jude's method was much more manageable... Continue reading

oxo, it's really great to be spending time on this end of the spectrum.

It's might be a little weird & silly how happy these windows and glass things make me!
Toggle Commented Feb 16, 2021 on Stitching by Snowlight ❄️ at handstories
Thanks, the snow light shining through the window collection was inspiring.

It was Such a beautiful couple of days. Sadly, it's melting here, too. I suppose the fleetingness of it is part of the wonder.

SO bright in the middle of winter was a treat.

There is a lot of gazing that happens here, I love these windows. I wrote about them here https://handstories.typepad.com/blog/2018/05/the-view-to-here-from-there.html I hope you are ok there! A few of our family members down in Oregon (where they have more ice than snow) have been without power since Friday, hopefully it will be back by tomorrow.
