A Stray Moment of Joy.
The moon seemed to have a green tinge and kept me awake all night.
We decided to party. Celebrate the turning of season.
This morning I am clearing out the studio and readying for the Wishing Cloth project. Large cloth needs space.

I did manage a double faced moon last night, with a bit of dye, doodle and stitch. Fireside.
Just a bit of stitch. I love how many ways these dyed circles can grow into story. And here how the weave in the cloth works right through it all. My favorite part was stitching that little eye.
The indigo vat seems happy by the woodstove. Happier than me. I'm itching for Spring. Again.
ThreadCrumbs will reopen later today. I'm off to stock up on supplies.

February is my birth month. I was born in a snowstorm.
I know there will be snow, at least in February.
Blizzard watch today. It began before dawn. The quiet wakes me.
I needed the blanket of quiet yesterday. My mind is worn out.
I'm sitting at the mending table. Some self care. I am going to sit here all day and watch. Catch up on email and stuff.
Continue stitching on an older piece that just became bigger. And more useful.
I have decided to call it to keep from screaming. I have been thinking a lot about voice lately. Being confused about that.
The stitched patch is like the snow. It came like season. Winter's voice. Looking for a word other than resistance.
We expect more than a foot of snow today. With high wind. We are prepared, we lose power here often during winter storms. Enough wood has been stacked indoors to keep both stoves going if necessary.
