the Hoya is flowering!
such wild things!
this one is making a valiant effort
the garden is providing a lot of solace on Monday a dear friend had surgery for a football sized tumor on her ovaries (removed successfully & it was benign thank goodness), yesterday another good friend needed a tarot reading and a good long talk starting with tea and cake at midday finishing off many hours later with a fine wine just on sunset
there is comfort in stitching Reaching for the Stars
we have 11 days off in a row from Dec 22nd to January 2nd look forward to lots of reading, watching movies, catching up with friends, going to the beach and just letting this old year go!

    Gorgeous Hoya, Mo! I got all excited to see buds on our s, but, as usually happens, some little beastie has nibbled the stem!

  2. coloremartine says:

    Sounds good how you want to spend those days Mo, let it be a magical time for you both……………..

  3. fiberels says:

    Ahhhh Mo, a PINK Hoya ?!? … ever had only a white one …
    (hope your friends are doing well ! with a bit of your help …. that’s what friends are for !)
    And your star-stitching is amazing …. can almost feel it 😉
    Thanks my dear Mo : the card is lovely (and special !)
    Have a GOOD holiday

      (((Els))) namaste cutting out each little star and then binding the edge with linen thread is keeping me almost sane, look forward to making lace out of all the little cut out leather stars to extend the reach of the sleeves

    How it might be to touch the stars …

  5. Louise Watson says:

    What an exotic furry flower and the gloves are looking amazing! Have a wonderful time taking a pause- like Fiona says!

  6. It’s 4AM now in Manhattan and having woken at 3 AGAIN, I’m catching up with favorite bloggers. Your Hoya reminds me of Grace Forests Hoya and the woman who drove a long way to give it a home…and of the Hoya that blooms at my oldest Friends place in Massachussets, and has been blooming through moves to three different places for the last forty years! They are truly astounding plants. Love the stars that are keeping you ‘almost’ sane and blessings galore to you and the old man for your 11 days of freedom to be.

      (((Michelle))) it’s a steamy hot summer night the cicadas are singing at just about midnight, the witching hour for dreaming into the Solstice & the letting go of this old year

  7. shemann says:

    enjoy your self Mo!

  8. shemann says:

    the Hoya is stunning!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Susan))) Hoyas almost seem to be a hybrid between animals and plants, they can grow on next to nothing in the same old pot for years and years but are very particular about where to flower well

  9. Margaret Johnson says:

    Hoya, to you too Mo!! Sturdy little plants aren’t they. I had one with white flowers and red centre’s for many years. Thankyou to you and Rod for your beautiful card…OXOX

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Marg))) this is the longest time both Old Man Crow & I have ever lived anywhere in our whole lives, 9 years and there is 9 flowers this year, we love this old lady of a house so much, she has given us space to make lots of art and music and one of the really good things about getting old is the Gold Opal Card, we can go anywhere in the city on public transport for $2.50 return even the Manly Ferry & good to hear your card arrived safely!

  10. vdbolyard says:

    sounds like a good winding down of the year.

  11. Glenda says:

    My hoya is also blooming (white with pink) here in southwest Florida. Thank you for the lovely card.
    May every kindness you share with the world find its way back to you. Happy Holidays.

  12. Nancy says:

    “Hoya” …sounds like some kind of word with deep meaning and purpose! And that glove…oh my!

    • Mo Crow says:

      it does and the flowers are magical, they drip a subtly sweet nectar & flower in the same spot each year as well as making so many new ones this year! the gloves are ambitious, at the moment I am questioning my sanity!

  13. nancy krampf says:

    LOVE…….everything 🙂

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Nancy))) the Hoya has had even more flowers and the starry gloves are slowly coming along, stitched the best pentacle yet this morning just before work am loving this new year!!
