A seed

U sefulness has so much to do with timing. I made this small component to demonstrate process for the big one. But I am not sure how useful that is anymore. I am thinking a lot about timing. and my own usefulness. What an elusive puzzle. It become clearer with age. We seem to be in the path of the storm sliding up the east coast.  . The base of the road in is in danger of washing out.  Gonna shut down and go move some large rocks.

continued from here ... A new space to put down new roots. Because healing is really a kind of growth, regrowth. I was thinking that. This is comforting. I think it has transformed into a safer place. I suppose also, my hands, reaching, then thinking about putting my hands in the earth. That is where the thought grew.

Weekend Reading 8.1.2020

I have to get on a plane today. My niece is getting married in Salt Lake City tomorrow so I’m off to the airport this afternoon. From the few friends I’ve spoken with, it’s not that bad, the airports are mostly empty. I’ll just bring my masks and hand sanitizer and off I go! I’m excited to see my two brothers and my sister. We haven’t been in the same room together in over a decade so it will be so great to reconnect with them. We have some “then and now” pictures planned and I can’t wait to hea...

Calculating the span of Heal (ing)

A Nest of Days is serving me well  a resting place for new clothwork. This one grew a bit, just a single layer of muslin overlapped and stitched.  One layer, the center is 3. That might be managed later. The man is, in the meanwhile, sanding the table. I think we best heal from the inside out.  I can stretch and touch the edge, while my heart remains the center. No stitch today but this exercise is also doing. Getting into the spirit of the thing. I made a video but it became a bit too braz...

The dough needs to chill for 30 mins. Use a little flour on the surface before rolling if the dough is a little sticky. [Author: Super Madcow]

This is me. And the tendency to complicate. I woke up in a frenzy. This is how my mind interferes with simplicity. Tendency, is it linked to need? Or habit? Form is fluid. Choosing makes things seem more static, permanent. More useful to others maybe, that's all. It all settles out into everything. I'm never sure if I can ever explain how clear this is to me.

Dark Merman, Skeleton tattoos

I am really excited about working with this African wax print fabric. I need to learn more about it. This piece (which was gifted to me) has a slightly shiny surface, even after washing. I will be keeping my eye out for other patterns that would work with my designs. I REALLY struggled with his hair. I tried out 3 other colors/patterns before settling on this orange-peachy color. And when I say tried, I mean I cut out the hair and beard, sewed up the beard, pinned it all on his he...

Afternoon Chat: Vacation Morning Views

I just returned from a three day trip to Bass Lake and Yosemite National Park. My teens have been home for months, so I wanted them to get a taste of life outside our hometown before their school year started. The family kayaked on the lake and went on a few small hikes in the national park. It’s so nice to wake up to a view different than the same one we have at home. Whenever I travel I do it on a budget and it’s rare I ever splurge on accommodations. I like clean and simple and in close proxi...
