Nature dances to her own song
an azalea blooming in my yard in November
that exuberant hot pink in the midst of brown and muted green
hope your weekend is filled with wonder!

Thinking about design
I have been thinking a bit about design and how to translate the beauty of shells into fabric pieces
how to see shells as lines and angles
I am inspired to work this into a wallpiece
but first I made this small ornament
having lived on a boat for 6 years and traveled from island to island,
I have a good collection of shells, sea glass, and broken coral pieces
to use for inspiration
not sure why they are inspiring me so much right now but it's a good thing
this thinking about design
exploring shape, color, and line
thanks for stopping by

Remembering that it's the process not the product
a sad tale
or perhaps just a story about acceptance and process
I have been knitting a shawl and was making very good progress with it
enjoying how the variegated yarn of blue and green and purple and tan and ....
mixed and melded
but last night I got a bit distracted
and realized that I had missed a row
and knitted lace where it should be garter
I tried to frog back
but I am a really terrible frogger
I frogged back to the ball
needless to say, I was very upset with myself
I took a lot of deep breaths and went to bed
today I will begin again
and remind myself
how much I love the process of knitting
What about you?
What are making or doing today?
