Takin’ it easy

After slamming from high-summer 90s into full-on winter 20s, the weather has come back to something near normal for Texas. So with an old Eagles pop-tune playing in my head, I took my barefeet out onto the back porch to dry my hair in the sun …

while enjoying a through-the-looking-glass view of my stitching window.

I even managed to piece a few patches together …

after auditioning a couple of iterations …

The latest strips are not as visually interesting, so they are soon to be dyed with tea and windfall lichen, gathered with the help of Griffin and Parker yesterday …

And while I don’t have pictures of our lichen gathering activities, nor of the rollicking game of soccer that followed, I do have a fun shot of P trying on Don’s boots …

I could get used to this …

  1. easy is the word. the Cloth…colors are easy on the MindsEye, i like them very much, but
    am looking forward to seeing what the lichen does.
    and the young fashionista, well…..
    things shift to a whole different vibe when there is no longer the need for Travel to be
    together…once again, Ease. so Nice.


  2. A Christmas visit to Port Arthur Texas many years ago acquainted me with the highly variable quality of Texas weather. I’m glad to see that you can relax into mini-summer in the midst of November. Parker in Boots…what a hoot! Clearly a Texan girl.


  3. You had me at ‘back porch’ …swoon. Love your patches and rather like your visually not interesting patches! And boy oh boy, that lil P. ~ what a doll baby!

  5. LA – there are times when we just need to chill – and typical of artists we always seems to add a bit of art into the chilling. Great photo of the boot modelling. Go well. B
