“… thoughts on time. She won’t explain that time comes out of the future, which does not yet exist, into the present, which has no duration, and into the past, which has ceased to be.”
All the Beloved Ghosts by Alison Macleod (p225)

Wild Peace

Fiona Dempster sent three of her hand printed Imagine Peace weathergrams with such impeccable timing! One of our favourite gardening customers has been put through hell this year, the new upstairs neighbour has been so awful she decided to move, found a place just up the road, bought it & put her lovely home of 31 years up for auction on Saturday but in a strange twist of fate the awful neighbour bought it… way too hard a deal so we invited this brave woman and her gorgeous cat to stay at our place until the bathroom is renovated in the new place, we need to Imagine Peace!
and Deb Lacativa sent these two strands of her “dirty” thread! I have lusted after some of this magic thread all year since watching Hazel, Liz and Grace make such “wild peace” with it! look forward to having a go as soon as I finish Once in a Blue Moon
magic is afoot, love really is the answer

out on the edge of the dark side of Once in a Blue Moon
1.5mm round leather cord stitched with Gutermann black linen thread
this has taken quite some time
inside the papier maché mold
detail of x’s once the edge is finished I can get started on the retractable moon ladder!

I dream of a world where love is the answer
mending our beautiful broken world stitch by stitch
with deep gratitude to this magic circle of makers
