weaving blooms

first, the seed.
from my writing partner and friend julie daley:


which sparked this in me:


which became this:


and you know how it goes.
one seed blooms,
then another,
then another
which is to say:
there’s more.
just you wait.

    women’s creativity is nourished by our connections to each other, for each other, and from each other. i am feasting on this…

      and your wisdom shines through again, jewels. i am feasting on our connection and on your photograph. it has opened up so much. been a thunk on the heart.

    well sure is nice to while away a few moments of Wee Hours looking through your stitches and fabric choices.  naturally i like this super-colorful piece the best.
