Brewing Up Beginnings

Northern Gannets I think
skimming along an unusually calm bay of Fundy

sent me rummaging through my dyed cottons
for this blue piece that has been waiting for a story to stitch.
Think I know what it is saying now.

A yellow T-shirt
too bright for me.
Let's try and calm it down.
Maple leaves and sweet fern have been stuffed inside.
It's steeping for a few days in a brew of apple leaves.
We shall see!


  1. That's a lovely subtle piece of fabric - looking forward to seeing how your T-shirt turns out!

  2. Looks like stuffed caterpillar to me!

  3. What wonderful calm rippling blues.

  4. It's going to be intriguing to see what happens with the Tshirt - AND what you do with the blue! Will the tshirt still be worn or do you have an art piece in mind?

  5. I will be back to see the results of these beginnings! -sus
