- Change is good

Thanks to everyone who was supportive of my initial stab at naturalist blogging, and to Dana especially who commented, "Good for you. Good for trying, Good for evaluating. Good for changing course if necessary. Good for continuing if valid. Sometimes you just have to check out new paths." And so I have. One Hill Country Year has been reconfigured and you can read a bit more about it here.

Meanwhile, I'm tremendously excited by the changes over at Spirit Cloth and am looking forward to seeing what the future holds. I looked back at my own blog and was surprised to find that it has been a mere 17 months since I started taking Jude's online classes. At the time, I prophetically titled the post Down the Rabbit Hole ... and indeed, I ended up in Wonderland.

By the way, I'm not the only one playing with patches these days ...

YD's "Thank you" got lost in the ether, so I'll send it along on his behalf. His new saw is turning out some awesome stuff ...

I think so, but I haven't made the time to do a firm identification.

just caught up... nice to see some creative momentum. I'm amazed at how much wood can look like cloth -- the lines of fiber, I guess. Can't wait to see what comes from the dyeing workshop!

I'm also looking forward to meeting some kindred spirits next month ...

Meanwhile, Don is layering stain and milk paint onto the blocks. Very cool ...

love the wood patchwork, my sin is really into it. and I have a floor like this.

Liz Ackert said...

Lucky you, but I hope your floor isn't too much like this. The picture doesn't show it, but the blocks vary in thickness from 1-3 centimeters ... which might could make walking on such a floor a bit hazardous.

Jude's design ideas transcend cloth ...
