the big news is my stitching has suddenly made a gigantic epiphany like breakthrough, after watching Jude Hill of Spirit Cloth quilting by lamplight on Sunday I changed the way I hold the needle & haven’t put the eye of the needle through my fingertip for days & days… it’s true, Jude is such a treasure, I have learned so much about cloth, stitch, art, life, the universe and everything since I first joined her circle in 2011!

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!

it’s 3AM… again

Louise Watson’s pennant  is Mending the Sky
for the pennant project
“I dream of a world where love is the answer”
Louise kindly gave permission to share these photos and words from her blog
“The blue sky behind gave me an idea. I have ironed and backed it with blue fabric and intend to make a feature of the holes. The sunshine brightened the fabric. I think it will be called Mending the Sky. I have an idea of birds in flight and darning stitches.”

these pennants are gathering our hopes and dreams
making strong threads to mend our beautiful broken world stitch by stitch
thank you Louise and everyone who has come onboard
Magic Days!
