- The heart of the matter

Retrospective (9/30)

Patch #267 Flood map


Not the most exciting thing to happen, but at least we finally signed up for FEMA flood insurance ...


Original Post

I wondered how best to stitch a replica of Mo's heart talisman for the post on September 12th (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2016/09/crow-landing.html).

Hers was made from felt, which reminded me of my paper making trials back in 2009 (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2009/10/mother-of-invention.html) when I used an old flannel shirt to make sheets of red paper ...


It's not an exact match and I'm pretty sure the paper will shred over time ...


but for now, it holds memory ...


I also took the time to search out each bit of red in Mo and Rod's book ...


some the merest wisp ...


meanwhile delighting in all the suns, moons, and stars, especially this one ...


that made me long for the sea ...
