We had to get a new computer and my issues with change have come into play, big time. Everything is different and intimidating, but the worst part is choosing options -- half the time, I don't know what possibly-terrible thing I'm agreeing to!
The orchid is in full bloom, its last bud opened a few days ago. Our house plants have gotten more and more babying as winter unfolds. It's tempting to think Spring is coming soon, but March is actually our snowiest month.
The wall hanging is going up in my sewing room, I didn't make it, but I wish I had. The word paisaje is stitched on the top, meaning landscape or scenery. Its intricacies are charming and a person could study them for some time -- there are flowers being gathered, apples being picked, ducks swimming with a guy nearly in the water with them, a man playing a flute, a woman carrying her spindle and yarn, y mucho mas. We have the binoculars at the quick and ready in case the coyote across the street yesterday morning comes back. It was the strangest but coolest thing that the coyote seemed to be accompanied by a magpie.
The bottom of a cotton top that's a little too tight across a certain area is being expanded with side slits. The girls were both sleeping on their sewing room beds, Talula (age 3) is the rusty one and Daisy (age 9) is the black. I think Talula was running in her sleep right before I took the photo.
A long-lost red and white cloth was found on the bottom of a pile of fabric. One of my first weavings in a class at Spirit Cloth a few years ago, I straightened and re-pinned it this morning. Now I'm looking forward to working on it this weekend while listening to NPR -- Prairie Home Companion, This American Life, Radio Lab, and heck even Car Talk. Stitching while listening to NPR is one of my favorite things to do and the girls enjoy it too, they love to "go sew."
Thanks for visiting and happy weekending. xxx
