as you can see from this vintage inspired needlebook i worked on for two twilight evenings in the company of james and helen herriot and sigfried and tristan of "all creatures great and small".
and then sticking to the commitment to finish all the unfinished while new ideas whirl into my brain from all those wonderful photos i run into on kindred blogs.
Sarah Moon and Christine of Gentlework
and ellen benson who i met in oaxaca
who makes the most fabulous dumpster divas as she calls them.
oaxaca is still in my veins
as i continue to explore their love of religious art
one of my inexplicable loves too since my father was an agnostic and my mother a non-practicing catholic.
and in between, i make small getaways to the ranch to pick blood oranges
and feathers and mysterious shards of pottery
and stops at the local fruit stands
