in the middle moonday

It seems like everything I'm making is either partially started or partially finished. But this piece for the larger flying dreams cloth is right smack in the middle. Sometimes in the middle is the easiest place to be, not that many decisions to make there. 

Today is a waxing moonday in Aquarius. The Aquarian effect helps us make improvements, encourages us to be more intellectual and less emotional, and prompts us to exchange solitude for socializing. This is a good time for brainstorming, too -- group work will benefit from our Aquarian imagination and enthusiasm.

Aquarius affects the lower leg, our calves and ankles. Even slight stress on our legs may cause symptoms -- I know firsthand because my legs ached last night for no reason that I could come up with. At the same time, leg problems may be more easily relieved now. Remembering to stretch our legs and put our feet up might be just the right thing.

I guess the little leaf cloth up there is finally getting its legs. Wishing you a nice week.

Pretty little cloth, it's legging along nicely :) Funny, I had achey legs last night too, and have just spent time this morning stretching them. Have a lovely week.

Marie said...

Oh boy do I know partially started or finished lol! Love the soft colors you chose and the leaf.
In the middle is a nice place to be.

Your cloth is so beautiful and the leave is a beautiful accent. I too love your gathering in your candle bowl. What bird did the feather come from? Or, are you like Nat and fooling me by painting the feather? LOL! I thought my achy legs were from the trips up and down the ladder putting up winter lights, perhaps Aquaris is telling me something. Time to put my feet up and stitch. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you for being a inspiration. xo

This is the place to be on Mondays! I always look forward to your posts. Right away you had me singing this song:
Where in his case, he's Stuck in the middle! Haha
I love your still life photos so much...along with your use of words in clothwork! Look forward to seeing where this cloth goes from here.
Have a wonderful holiday (if you celebrate). I am thankful to have you in my circle of friends :)

Me too, I'm a starter not a finisher, but all processes are fun and creative. I love these blocks and the combination of blue and brown - Hugs Nat

Wow! I had achy legs last night as well! I really like this leaf cloth. For some reason, it makes me feel hopeful!

ha! ain't that the truth?!? i just love your "middle" though! so beautiful and so full of promise!

Peggy said...

Thanks, Nanette -- I find it so amazing that I feel the symptoms before even realizing what planet the moon is in. Maybe doctors should keep track of the moon, too!

Deanna, thank you -- don't little collections just seem to happen overnight?

Marie, glad to hear I have company here in the middle! Thank you. :)

Peggy said...

Jeannie, thanks! Well, this feather is real :) It's a northern flicker, one of our most common birds -- they're probably pretty common everywhere but I love them regardless. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Peggy said...

Hi Nancy, thanks for the link, I had myself a listen. It takes you right back. High times. ;) And thank you for your encouraging words, I appreciate them very much and I'm so grateful for you in my circle, too.

Peggy said...

Nat, thank you. We are a big group of people, we starters!

Sara, oh dear, your legs, too? ;) I liked reading that it made you feel hopeful. Thank you.

Joe, thanks -- yes, in the middle we still have all that hope that we started with.
