- Catching up

How can this happen when I've been posting everyday? I'm already two days behind documenting the first agarita blossoms with some impressionistic stitching on Deb Lacativa dyed cloth ...


Patch #59

a reprise of this scene ...



Then there's the latest weather week, a-side ...


and b-side, which better shows yesterday's red seam for the death on the floodplain ...


Not to mention Melissa's birthday towel from two weeks ago ...


with her own saying ...


and a bevy of anchors to make the point (ha!) ...


front ...


and back ...


I also revised last Tuesday's Patch #54 with an Inktense sunset ...


which I'm calling "just okay" compared to the real thing ...

The view from Meg's dining room

And the addition of herbage (can you believe that's a word?) ...


to Wednesday's droughted floodplain Patch #55 ...


which has already been revised in real life by 1.2" of rain this past week ...


Finally, I'm now thinking of doing some agarita dyeing ...

which I'll surely do with the sweet strains of Tupelo Honey running through my mind.

Thanks Susan ... the fabric was dyed by Deb Lacativa, who sells an incredible array here: http://randomactsofdyeness.blogspot.com/

Thank you! I'm learning as I go, which makes it all the more fun

Thank you (again) ... someday I hope to try mending one of Don's shirts the way you have worked your magic on Old Man Crow's shirt. Your stitching is inspirational!
