Going back

Today I’m continuing to add stitches to a cloth I started a couple of months ago. 

Hand-dyed cotton scrim, old and new lace, sheer ribbon and simple stitches.

Cool colours: blue, green and purple.  Winter colours; colours for turning inwards, for contemplation of the season.  We have cold weather coming later in the week.

    It must be nice to be free again without the structure of the little book. Beautiful colours too.

    It looks restful – a change is as good anyways… – guess you are half glad half sad you finished your wonderful book…

    that is raaaather lovely and yes , it does seem very reflective and thoughtfull, are you mourning the end of the book?is your mojo having a quiet recharge? I feel, that whilst your stitching is lovely, it shows a distinct lack of jelly beans and maltesas, Iam eating these for you as you read this….

      Well, since I don’t like jelly beans or maltesers, I’m grateful that you’re willing to eat them on my behalf. Recharging in preparation for what I hope will be a Great Thing.
