All over the place

So much-ness … dyeing with windfall lichen gathered with our Austin grandkids …

playing with miniature bookmaking (and no, this is NOT the way to do it, but it photographed beautifully) …

this is more like it …

Inspired by Annick, I played with letters, names …

wondering how they might find their way onto cloth.

Meanwhile, the yard is slowly becoming, so different from the Hill Country, but yet …

echoes of that time continue.

And of course, there is stitching …

and learning, how linen and flannel may not nestle as well as one might hope …

but well enough …

And last is best, as stitching down this tiny bit of cloth …

the naming of the larger bed cloth came to me …

my heart’s compass.

  1. Don’s art is a lovely addition to your yard. Don’t forget there’s rusty stuff out here if he needs more. Your work is Beautiful as always.

  2. Your name play reminds me of when I was little and my Godmother and I made up a secret code language where each ABC letter was represented by a symbol of some sort. We then wrote each other letters that we’d have to de-code 🙂
    I like the name you chose, it fits you and your cloth well.

    1. Interesting to note, when I was first gathering cloth together I had thought to name it “pieces of me” … but that seemed a bit scattered, which would be accurate, but I was waiting for something to occur to me that was/is a bit more aspirational

    1. Yellow and rose … rust and coral … tan and orange … I love the warmth in this part of the spectrum … with water and sky running through it all

    1. Don planted a raised bed vegetable garden at our daughter’s house … potatoes, peppers, herbs and tomatoes. Meanwhile, we’re keeping track of the sun in our new yard, just planting herbs in pots for now.

  3. Heart’s Compass, how beautiful- in thought and cloth. I love the movement in your stitched tiny bit & the centering of the compass rose in the next photo.

    1. Hazel – your Story blanket has been my inspiration … especially knowing that flannel served a role in its making … likewise, your just going stitches … so I let myself trust that the compass lines would be true without drawing anything on the cloth … the flannel and four pins held the cloth as I stitched and it came out better than I ever dared hope
