Oh, Deb, you're so sweet! It was really good to have a deep moment of noticing all of the goodness. oxo

You're welcome, and thank you, Patty! It's always good for me to stop and ask myself "Why?" now & then.
Thank you, Mo, for these links! I will enjoy exploring her intriguing work. I love the idea of two panes of glass for a frame... looking at cloth "from both sides now"
So glad you found it interesting, Liz! I actually tried using real pins, a few different kinds, but just kept bending them with the hammer...
Thanks so much, Els! I appreciate this, knowing that you have so much experience at these kind of things.

Thank you, Dana. It was such a nice night, the town had their tree lighting and Santa visit that eve, so everyone was in a festive mood. There had been so much worry about the "others" part of the show, that I was completely, and happily, surprised by the view of myself and my world. It was a much appreciated gift.

OK, this is for Grace, Liz and others who have asked... It's a gray rainy day for photos, but here's my three cents about backings and framing. I have mixed feelings about covering up all of the stitching on the backs of pieces. The tangle of threads and knots does... Continue reading

Thanks, Dee. It was good for me, but I don't know if I'll ever do it again. Leading up to it, it was hard- in time, body & emotionally, and then, all of the hopes & fears were let go of. The experience turned into a completely unexpected gift of just being in the moment.

The larger cloths are not framed, other than with cloth backings that extend out. When it stops raining I'll take some closer photos of both sides of things. I don't know if there will be ever be an "again", but I'm very glad for the experience, too. Love back.

Yes, Grace! I thought of you when I realized there were feelings of excitement and happiness. They were mounted on wooden cradled boards with two tiny nails in the top corners. Sorry, I didn't do a good job with photos. These were taken before the event, and I didn't think about it during.

The Cotton Building in Port Townsend was a beautiful space, and the rain stopped in time. So pleased to have had my little squares next to the wonderful work of Tininha and Tracy. Tininha's weavings are as joyful and passionate as she is. Tracy's patchwork brings to mind the wonder... Continue reading

Happily, he said "yes" when I asked him.
Yes, relieved to be leaving tomorrow & know that there's nothing more to be done! Thank you, Tina!

Dear Marti, your words fill my heart and spirit, thank you so much for all of these beautiful thoughts. Port Townsend is a nice place, and the drive through the countryside on the way there is always beautiful, and the same is true for Leavenworth. oxo
