Woke early. Tired from company still here. Probably because I derive my energy through solitude.
As the sun rose, I thought OK, just stitch Nine. Maybe just Nine for No Reason.
But then I thought oh! A reason. Season. Shift.
A little Nine for Equinox . A little Equinox cloth then.
Nine for Shift
I'll save Nine for No Reason for another day.
I got a lot of emails yesterday. Can't even count them. I am in between selves at the moment. Putting together some ideas in order to transform my approach to teaching. Gathering the courage to move forward. Based on the huge response, I may change my original idea a bit. I have canned the mailing list idea. Too big. I will post information here sooner or later. Probably sooner. But after the company leaves. On the Equinox oddly enough. As always, thank you for your support and patience.
The center square here was done as an indigo resist over the seam in a patchwork. One of many components I began developing in a past workshop. I will be sharing more about that here, soon, but now I must go to the market and shop for many people.
I am smiling because I am happy to celebrate with him.
He is smiling because he is younger than me.
No gifts. Just smiling. He likes it that way.
I used one of the Pairings waiting for stitch on the wall, just to illustrate the fact that I think (a note to self) it is just grand that after all these years we might still be smiling. And that's enough.
Tomorrow is July. And I will be back to stitching and sharing and not just imagining.
