see clearly moonday


The little October calendar moon cloth is all sewn up, so I'm poking around, trying to decide what's in the stars for me next, in a sewing way. I came across these tucked-away sun and moon projects on linen -- no progress whatsoever on either of them since they were begun. Maybe the sashiko moon just wants to be a sashiko moon and no more. I want to call the sun piece there goes the sun instead of here comes the sun. As the days get shorter, a sunset is maybe more fitting than a sunrise.

I made some leafy dye bundles this morning that are cooking on the stove right now. Then I hunted for flowers to make a small bouquet. To do that in November is unheard of, but it's just glorious outside. Most of the autumn color here in Colorado is yellow, but we're trying to change that and it's a little redder and orangier every year.

Today is a waxing moonday in Pisces. We are well-inclined to continue to strengthen and expand ventures and projects under the growing moon. Some Pisces associations are heightened intuition, desire to retreat, imaginative, dreamy, and more idealistic than realistic.

To seeing clearly.

You would have had so many colorful leaves to play with at the moment. Would you put all the moon cloths together and photograph at the end? Would love to see them together. Thanks so much for Parsley salad recipe. I have making it twice this week - Hugs Nat

Can't wait to see the results of your bundles...your moon cloth looks good...they have really evolved over time! I would love to see them all together too...

I'm fond of stipple drawing, so the stitches on linen are very pleasing to me. My intuition is working overtime lately (pesky Pisces), and requires certain stops and checks to stay balanced...apparently other peoples speculations have leaked into my thoughts. Seeing clearly seems critical.

Everything here is perfection! Tell me more about the woman figure holding the moon cloth. I don't recall seeing her before. I love the simple moon. It reminds me of a mother and child stitching I began when my son was an infant. He's 33 now...maybe I will finish it!! That's many...MANY sunrises and sunsets!!

Your simply beautiful starry moon is wonderful. I've been "knowing" things, dreaming and retreating lots these days....so I guess I'm right on track with the moon.

Thanks, Michelle! Hope things have come into perfect focus for you.

Nancy, she's a cast bronze sculpture from Jan. I'd seen and fallen in love with her at a flea market and he snuck over there and bought her for me for my birthday a long time ago. Have to keep her out of reach of little ones because she's really heavy and could probably hurt someone. ;)

Thank you, Cindy -- I can envision you knowing and dreaming. :)

Nat, yes I plan on trying to get a photo of them all together. Right now they're strung like a banner. So glad you like the parsley salad!

Deanna, thanks, it's nice to figure out the next step on something! A freeze should do it. ;)

Suzanna, three more days and I can unroll the latest bundles! I think this moon cloth is my favorite one, but I say that about everything. Ha.
