more stitches, more art

April 7, 2020

I wasn’t alone on my walk today

there were 3 deer but by the time I had my camera ready all I got was the last one

a new hexie for this week

I started with 5

3 for the weeks I’ve been self isolating and 2 for the previous weeks

from the outside looking in

from the inside with the late afternoon sun shining through

more progress on the book

the first 4 pages opened out

the title page  “Stripes and Squares”

it is a take on A.A. Milne’s poem “Lines and Squares”

“Bears, just watch me walking in all the squares!”

the tiny bear, just 1 1/2 inches is shown beside a Canadian two dollar coin (a toonie)

he fits in the pocket from an old pair of jeans – I think I bought those jeans for the pocket!

we have a generous number of book boxes in the neighborhood

you can leave a book or two and/or take one

this one is a work of art – a piano, a drummer and a dog playing a tune – in Redfern Park

more art – a garage door in a back alley

no sharks seen

      Kate – let’s just hope it doesn’t out grow the window and fade in the afternoon sun.

        Perhaps you could pin them to a tape so they could branch out into the room rather than the outside, like some sort of tropical creeper?

        Kate – they are my form of hearts and rainbows in the window which many in the community are doing. I will place them in the shape of a rainbow. Time will tell. They have to be seen from the sidewalk – although my cedar hedge is almost too high.

    I made quilts for the beds my grandchildren slept in when they came her. Random rectangles of fabric which included stuff from their outgrown clothes. I also included pieces of jeans with pockets for ‘treasures’ and button bands to fiddle with. They loved them. They are teenagers now and ‘too grown up for those’ but no doubt they will like them when they are really grown up[!

      Cathy – it is good to keep busy and they give my busy brain something to think about other than when I can go to the grocery store.
