- Vintage composting

Retrospective (4/29/2016)

Patch #90: vintage embroidered handkerchief ...


Original Post 

I haven't disappeared exactly, but I find myself in need of some fallow time. So, the daily posts have been put aside for now. And while I still intend to make a patch for each day, the idea of presenting them as series rather than individual pieces is forming in my mind.

So, I'm reading ...


and considering how I might repurpose my small collection of vintage handkerchiefs among other things.

This book looks so good, Liz. I checked it out on Amazon and it sounds like it could have been written by you - you truly do find inspiration everywhere.

Every day IS a lot ... and I feel like I have lost something important in letting go of the daily practice. So as I write this, I wonder, "What now?"

We shall see.

I traipsed through Pinterest and was wildly uninspired by handbags and quilts, window treatments and pillows (from sachet to full size). What's needed is a way to hold each piece in order to fully appreciate the fine cloth and stitch, and to see both front and back. I'm beginning to think a book form may be what's called for ... with some sort of text overlay.

Meanwhile, there are many more projects-in-theory already in the mental pipeline. Not enough hours in the day, nor days in the week ...

Amazing how a hug can reach around the world. Thanks Mo ...

maybe it can change back and forth? maybe when it FEELS everyday, it
can be. Maybe when it feels like something else, it can go there for
a while or as long as it feels right....and well....it's interesting how
we make "rules" for ourselves that aren't really necessary

True, but as my DVD exercise instructor says, "Stop cheating! You're only cheating yourself." (Note: exercise is another new practice that I'm struggling to do daily).

After reading your blog, there was no question what I wanted to do. Today's post will be a new beginning.

And the rules ... I've been thinking about that, too.
