Thanks to Homespun magazine for including my boro patched blue jeans in their modern mending feature. I'm Patch Project #10 up there. Homespun is a lovely Australian craft magazine full of unique projects, the paper is heavy enough that just paging through feels nice, like you've really got your hands on something. I found several things to put on my to-make list -- first up will be those woven patches under Patch Project #14.
I've been thinking about this season of Yule that both energizes and depletes me. Reflecting on gift-giving and gift-receiving. Asking myself if I continue to do the real work of so many family traditions out of love -- or for love. That is a question that can be put to good use any time in any situation, I think.
There will soon be a new moon full of possibilities (on Friday)....but join me now in the quiet darkness and let us take time to rest and restore ourselves.
