skipping through my mind


distant friends.
fragments of ideas.
snippets of information.
snatches of inspiration.
questions, always questions.


beginning to make things again.
experimenting with photos and transfer glue and wax from our beehives.
why is making such a fleeting thing?
i feel it drift from me, just out of reach.
and then it drifts back.
i wonder how to make it stay?


pink and blue morning skies.
pink and blue felted stones.
we learned how to make them here.
ours are kind of lumpy and rather large.
but i learned a lot about wool quality.
no more cheap roving from the dollar store,
no matter how pretty the colors may be.
probably going to need some sheep.

I love that your decision to avoid cheap wool led you directly to the need for a sheep. Why not a goat for the cashmere? ;-)

Need a sheep? You know how I feel about that.

Promise to send me some of the first fleece.
