This is the place where you might find out , in a nutshell,
what is going on with me in general.
In case you don't stop by everyday.
Life and Season
Shorter days, more chill, considering the onset of winter's coma. They say lots of snow. OK. Maybe that's how it will be. A new blog schedule is evolving as winter life here, at least the style we have chosen, will take more personal energy to sustain. Pulling inward or Rocking Back as I like to think of it, will simply mean less computer time and more stitching, drawing, cooking, being. Less posting but a deepening in the Small Journeys. As the cold moves in ( any minute now) I will be posting 3-4 times a week . Let's see how that works. Who knows? Please note, my posts will become more Diary style, that is I may be adding to them after the initial publish. If you are subscribed by email, you will not see these updates. So stop by now and then.
I have also removed all my links for a while. Many of them are invalid and outdated and well it has all become too much to keep track of at the moment. I think the new year will bring more clarity to this cloud I call my mind.
Soul-o aka Chicken most of the time, the feral boy, has adjusted nicely to his new home. This month will mark 11 months since he has come from the forest. He enjoys the heat of wood stove and loves to eat crickets.
The shop is Open. But quiet. Thank you for visiting.
I hope to drop in some small works this month. There is a tab up in the menu bar, NEW in the Shop, which will always take you to the new additions in the shop first.
Small Journeys has become the new format for my sharing of process. Maybe ultimately how it will go. I haven't really settled into the swing of it yet. But I think it will be fine. Really just an enhanced version of the blog, following my little travels in cloth and thought and doodle and such, in more detail for those who are curious. Otherwise days will pass as usual.
I thank the many who have already joined in. For your quiet companionship and your ongoing support as I try to push the limits of generosity. And thank you all for the positive feedback. With new year you can look forward to the addition of the small journeys shop which will be added to the site. For little things.
What if Diaries # 2 Considering Weave, has closed. The forum will close in a few days. The series itself will be available as a work on your own format with the new year.
All current online sharing is available as work on your own, no forum. I have re-posted the two Boro classes which can be purchased separately or as a package with a discounted price. A few more mini classes will be posted in the new year.
I hope to run a new online workshop focused on drawing, journaling and paper next fall. I will keep you posted on that. Nah.
The Magic Feather Project
A week or two left. It has been quite a journey. I will post finished pictures soon. I had planned to do a more formal documentary but I got lost in the gift of the thing. It simply became more about that. We the Piece-makers might simply hold that in our hearts I think. That can be enough.
You can read about this project in the top menu bar .
My progress has been on the blog, under the category HOME.
Phase 2 of this project will begin in January.
Thank you all for your ongoing support and community.
It helps me keep going.
