Being creative

Day 59

I love being creative.

A photograph I took of a Spreadwing Damselfly
became the pattern on 6 yards of Kona Cotton which became
my curtains.
I enjoyed the entire process.

Sewing Machine

Day 56

Once again I have fallen in love
 with my sewing machine.

The thrill of
 winding the bobbin and lowering the pressure foot
pulsed through my veins this morning.

I am back sewing!

Day 47

It was cool enough for me to go walking this morning.
I love my walks and I have missed them!


Day 46

The rain evaporated before it touched the trees.
We were left with the rainbow.
Rainbow is hope this drought will end.

Wara / Tatami,
the sabi-ness of straw.

I love the idea of using plant fibers for mats and baskets.
