it's done ...

and I'm done ... toasted ... fried ... dot dot dot
it's been a long week of lots of school activities
(for instance: track meet this afternoon, science fair tonight)
and the only spot of peace has been my peaceful stitching 
a moment here
a moment there


and believing that we ARE on the backside of winter


in spite of hail yesterday
snow today
and tomorrow -?- who knows


as they say around here:
"if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes"

how about:
"if your life has gotten crazy, lose yourself in some handwork"

Love all the creativity in this one piece. Lovely to look at. The words add so much.

How about--The heart occupies a zone of it's own, and the weather there fulfills only it's own predictions.

Really really--no word--the long lines of stitch--the configuration of the patterning, and the choice of words--perfect.

Sometimes I forget that you have a very real and often frenzied life outside the peace that you create. Honestly, your art is transcendent.

Wow, I adore the quiet contemplation in your art. I look at your sea glass heart every day and I feel a sense of peace whenever I see it. You've done it again Kim....xox
