Grace-less

I miss Grace. And I'm sure I'm not alone in wandering over to Windthread, even knowing she's no longer there. The Rolling Stones song Wild Horses plays in my mind's ear. Grace always did say she liked Mick Jagger.

Surely she has made her way home to The Hill by now. Tay and Tazmeena and the goats exploring. Grace and Emrie getting acquainted, at long last. A family reunited.

So while waiting for word, this cloth unexpectedly demanded to be made ...


Grace will surely approve of the glue stitching that has bound these Texas-dyed cloths together with Deb Lacativa's hand dyed harem cloth backing. 

I'll let you know what becomes of it.

I'm so glad you wrote this, I've been doing the same thing, it seems strange not to have updates on her day. I want to know how it was as it all unfolded. We will UNTIl...as Grace said. x

I hope whoever gets a postcard from her will let us all know ...

Oh yes, Liz..it is such a time of wondering, hoping, expectations...and the "just going" in Grace's manner is not always easy and I am experiencing my own need to just keep going...and waiting and knowing all will be shown in light in due time.
Your cloth brings a smile as I began last night a small piece in my own remembering way...yes, quiet month from Jude and now the anticipation of a photo of Grace on the HILL....finding some voice in thread as I put it to cloth.
A winter, frosty day here, wrapped in knitted stole I head now to my little place for stitching some more.

Kristin - Texas sun has made our frosty winter interlude a memory ... wishing you heart-warming stitch time

it is odd to be so invested and so full of wondering

Deb said...

I called her today. Voicemail. Left a message. I suspect she has lost or mispacked her cell phone in the move. Won't be the first time. If I hear back from here, I will let everyone know.

Dee - life is wondrous strange ...

Deb - you’re my wish come true ...
