Today

Today is tangled

Threads are tight, bits and pieces

Life in pandemic.

Art Prescription: As much as I relish keeping a positive upbeat, there is art that reflects our times.

Slow Stitching with fabric and embroidery:

Sun

Heat of the bright sun

Radiates off my skin now

After a shower.

Art Prescription: and these are two shower days! Biked this morning and then walked this afternoon.

For an indoor cool activity I did list a new Stitch Kit in my Etsy shop!

This one is for kids and beginners! So fun!!

Heart Felt

Steady heartfelt good

Showing up day after day

Motives deep in veins.

Art Prescription: We are mostly lucky in life if we have our health, to choose where we spend our time and energy.

Weather

A jacket in June?

Warm layers for rainy walk

Smell gardenias.

Art Prescription: I don’t ever remember needing a jacket in June. It’s usually sweltering hot.

This is a pattern made from acrylic paint, a stencil, and colored pencil. Now I’ve made mini cards to go in my Stitch Kits.

Building Blocks

Roof without cover

Garden with freshly tilled soil

Plans for the future.

Art Prescription: All projects start with plans. As you build, you reassess each angle. Measure twice, cut once.

I’ve just listed my next Stitch Kit!

Introducing: Wren

Wren

Carolina Wrens

And House Wrens sound out vocals

Big songs, little birds.

Art Prescription: Wrens are one of my favorites. I love their ducking gestures.

This is going to be my fourth Stitch Kit! Super excited to launch:

New Nest

Each piece of pine straw

Or lichen, twigs, spider’s silk

Laid with high design

Art Prescription: Bird’s nests are architecturally a wonder!

My walks sustain me.

And also my art. My Stitch Kits are designed to give peace.

New design:
