Retrospective (9/30)

Patch #267 Flood map

Not the most exciting thing to happen, but at least we finally signed up for FEMA flood insurance …

Original Post
I wondered how best to stitch a replica of Mo’s heart talisman for the post on September 12th (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2016/09/crow-landing.html).

Hers was made from felt, which reminded me of my paper making trials back in 2009 (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2009/10/mother-of-invention.html) when I used an old flannel shirt to make sheets of red paper …

It’s not an exact match and I’m pretty sure the paper will shred over time …

but for now, it holds memory …

I also took the time to search out each bit of red in Mo and Rod’s book …

some the merest wisp …

meanwhile delighting in all the suns, moons, and stars, especially this one …
that made me long for the sea …
