girly granny

I finished sewing a pillow I began long ago and stuffed it with scrap fabric for a lovely lumpy feel.  I like how the collage of fabrics turned out, and I like the spirit of it though I just want to stay at home.

I love handwork more and more as I get older. I appreciate the time and care and skill it takes to make such intricate and lovely designs as these.  Such efforts are rare in a world of cheap goods, and such aesthetics are mostly unexplored. The natural fibers, how they age, and little irregularities in the structures are pleasing for those who like the natural world and the human touch.

lunch bunch

I like having oddball plates, it makes the table setting more fun as a whole.

Rest in peace Charlie

I'll miss you so much my beautiful boy
your big chin
sweetly licking pp's head
politely waiting while she ate
playing with the dripping water
sitting on the porch swing
claiming your window perch
 fully relaxed and content
stretched out across the bed
with us in the morning sunshine
