It's been awhile since I've done any hand stitching. Today I found some fabric that I really liked and started 2 by 2 until I had a grid. Wool because it is warm in the hand.
Overlaid now with the screen that has been catching raindrops all day.
Weather report: High winds but from the south so it is warmer, heavy rains, dark sky.
And then because I started considering the difference between knitting and sewing I started knitting...
Thinking about my desire to make things whole, to put things back together.
And that returns me to a favorite book... Finding Beauty in a Broken World by Terry Tempest Williams.
"I trust what I can touch. The surface of things is what we touch."
And because it fits the day...A favorite song, Autumn Lullaby by Natalie Merchant, that can be listened to here.
