The view to the sea is slowly filled with green every year in the month of May.
Inspired by how it goes, I did the same. Not a Mom style green, but more of a me green (thinking a bit about how that comes to be). Actually a piece cut from one of Dad's old shirts toned down by walnut. To patch it I worked from the the other side. Turning it to check the front now and then. I think I will work at making this reversible in some new way. So it won't be finished quickly. But it can be used while I am considering what comes next.
Meanwhile Soul-o has been practicing some ragged reverse applique.
As a cloth person, I can appreciate that. Might as well give it a name. Pawswork. An other version of CATchwork. I am sure we will see more of it.
Deck maintenance was a must this spring. A lot of things got out of hand when Mom was ill. In addition to the grunge, this space became cluttered as well. The old bench got a coat of paint to slow the wood rot. It was So wet last year and through the winter. Another wet summer coming I think. Everything returns back to earth here very quickly.I will grow some herbs in pots here this summer. The newly established family of deer are invading my garden and I don't know if we are up for building a fence. I hope they don't like grapes.
And then some practical patchwork. Making the wiggly floor in the studio more of a solid ground. We didn't bother staining the patches to match. Why?
An overgrowth of ivy has been removed from the old oak and the old wall and the old path. An old way cleared for going.Maybe for a walk down to the old sea.
