Wow and wow

First wow : I was the lucky winner of Deb Lacativa’s birthday lottery. My selection of “precious bits” and thread came in a crocheted pouch — didn’t expect that! I haven’t purchased any of Deb’s cloth in a long time (or much cloth at all these days) and I’ve never used the magic threads, so I’m psyched!

Whole worlds live in some of these scraps.

Using even a little bit of this fabric elevates a composition, so how luscious would it be to construct an entire house with them? Imagine!

The second wow : the weather. You cannot believe how the wind and rain swept through here last night. It pounded and blew with a furious insistence that seemed to express the mood of a nation anticipating the Mueller indictments. I couldn’t sleep, so I padded out in the downpour around midnight to clear the sewer grate, weirdly happy to be reminded of my mammalian place in this world. The elements. A bathrobe getting saturated. Then I made popcorn and watched TV until two. Distraction is something to feel grateful for as well. Nearly every square foot of the backyard has a fallen branch in it — some moderate-sized and some small, but everywhere!

    How enticing! Beautiful threads and cloth as raw materials for anything. I’m glad the storm didn’t do too much damage.

      We lucked out this time. Spent some big bucks on tree work last year. That helps with wind like last night’s.

    Hurray for you! I wondered who won Deb’s give-away as I couldn’t open her video. Aren’t those colors delectable? Your black and white photos are great. Distractions can be very good.

    Gorgeous everything…and poetic justice to give you more fabulous bits to work into your pieces.
    but please post just this on FB:
