round and full.
I am drawn to the sphere of a full moon. It shows up often in my photos.
Or stark and alone in a blue black sky.
Now dancing with the stars.
Even partnered with a dancing maiden.

Oh this poor neglected blog. I have found that I spend so much more time with Facebook postings then I do here. However the blog allows for more expansive writing then I feel comfortable with on FB.
I have set the Trash Bird aside for such a long time it seems. I just could not do another stitch of the same shape in the same color it was making me dislike the whole work. So I set it aside. Then winter hit and the holidays came and I was overworked and felt little desire to create anything except sleep.
Now that all that has subsided I picked up the Trash Bird and still couldn't face all those leaves. Sigh. So, needing to DO something I did a quick fusing of bright golden circles on a blue background. Haphazardly penciling in circles within circles and points that are freehand drawn. No careful measuring here. No reason for perfection. This is my happy piece. Sunflowers or suns or stars or whatever. Just happy.
I am enjoying this and boy did I need this!
Thanks for checking in on this blog from time to time.

I needed a distraction from everything. A distraction that I could finish in a day. The Trash bird has been sitting neglected for a bit. I hit the point where I just wanted it DONE. So I set it aside rather then rushing it to a finish I might not be happy with.
Now, baskets. That is something that goes quickly and easily. So here are my three black and white fabric baskets. Smallest one about three inches high. I added a silver toned button to one and glass beads to two.
Happy to have completed somethings!!

I have managed to get a little stitching done and the current state of the quilt is like above with a few more leaves done. Pictures soon, I hope!

A question often asked of my work.
How long from beginning to end?
From the spark of inspiration.
To the glimmer of an idea.
To making the idea more.
To a study of fabric color and stitch.
To laying out the pattern.
To placing stitch by stitch.
And stitch by stitch by stitch.
Time means nothing here. Seasons start and finish.
The work gets picked up and put down. Sometimes it gets set aside for weeks at a time.
So in answer to the question I can only ask, How do you measure time...
