time and the weather

April 9, 2022

typical Spring weather

the day started with a pounding hail storm – fortunately it only lasted 10 minutes

it is cold and windy but now there is blue sky and sun shine

and the quince is blooming

gathering materials for the book pages

in the center page #11 is finished, page # 12 ( beside it) started today

handwoven patches with designer labels I’ve collected over the years

I’m not counting my thinking time in the 15 minutes per day – – every day, non-stop doesn’t leave much time to reflect

some pages come together easily – some I like and some not so much

the background is my old yukata ( cotton summer kimono)

the design on the black and white fabric is perfect for stitching

it is a lining scrap from a handwoven scrappy coat I made in 2015

the black and white chequerboard repeats the woven pattern at the bottom of the coat

and a bright splash of sunshine in the garden

    We have had similar weather with hails showers a, cold nights but days that are warm if you are in the sun. But the garden assures me that Spring is well on iots way.

    If we counted ‘thinking time’ into the time we spend on creative work it would be really scary! But how can we not? It is who we are.

    That coat is gorgeous, and so are the black & white fabric and the quince blossoms. I’m so glad the hail didn’t take those out….

      Kate don’t wear the coat much, it is quite heavy with all the patching and therefore warm. The tulips had just started to bloom, the hail – or deer – got a couple.

    The weather was crazy today! James and I were cutting down an old apple tree when we were hit by the hail.
    Your quince is beautiful!
