I have been quietly stitching..
when I have not been watering..
the yard and the plants..
We are in an epic dry spell..
this should be the rainy season..
which is often a pox in itself..
but lack of water means that our tall forests run the risk of fire..
So I hand water what I can since we have severe water restrictions...
I think I could fill the other tiny French Journals
with these meditative stitches..
and I just might do that..
I love gathering unruly bits of hand dyed cloths and
stitching them together..
when I listen gently..
they tell me which pieces go together..
like little playmates
drawn to one another..
So I stitch and think of rain..
and the garden flooding beautifully..
Now I have a place for them..
I will have to dream of a new body of work to
put them all to work..
Please take good care of yourselves..
We are home together..
wearing masks when we gather food..
and taking no chances..
I wish you all a healthy and happy week..
