Today I have no thoughts to write just some efforts to share. All my spare time and not so spare time is consumed by my new elaborate embroidery and my studies.

A sunny morning spent beyond the cemetery gates. Marveling at the perfection of synthetic imitation against a backdrop of hewn stone split by shifting earth and hungry tree roots. Later the clouds split with lightening, a torrent consumed the streets sending icy water down my spine and up my legs. Good day to be carrying a camera apparently.

I recently purchased a compendium of embroidery stitches, 260 in all. I’ve begun experimenting on this little sampler to decide on stitches and get an idea of patterns to use on some new book covers.
