Holding on and Hanging out


I've missed the geese on my morning walks.
Now I know where they are.


Down the other end of the basin in Diane's garden
hanging out with a pheasant!


Meanwhile the marshland around the dikes
is turning into gorgeous warm autumnal colours.
Funny that we are given this visual feast of warmth
before the white coolness (freezingness!) of winter takes over.


The studio needs a clean-up


But not too much...


It's good to keep....


things in sight...


 to remind me of where I have come from....


and perhaps where the next stitching should go.

  2. Love the stitching! I find cleaning and straightening an activity that helps stimulate new projects. I don't enjoy taking the time to clean up (and don't do it often enough), but enjoy re-discovering items I've forgotten about and finding things I've been looking for.

    1. My cleaning up mission never seems to be completed... A beautiful piece of fabric usually calls out to me and off I go on another stitching!

  3. I think Autumn clean up is as much or more important than the spring flush :) Something about getting the hatches battened down and ready for comfortable days inside, nesting and making winter sing instead of snow groaning on the roof.

  5. Nothing better than inspiring yourself with your very own work -- looking at it with fresh eyes and saying 'ahh'!

    1. And the work of others also hangs within eyesight too!

    And your next stitching? Seems a supremely fine direction for any destination....

  7. Oh Penny, those stitchings are so marvellous, I love how the mind can drift following the path traced by the embroidery.

    1. And my mind drifts when I see those lovely photographs you take of your part of this world.

  8. Gosh, our crazy geese are driving us nuts taking LEISURELY strolls across busy roads in flocks of 30s. Why don't they just FLY where they want to go? Too funny and an advantage of living near the river that winds through our local towns.

    Love your stitching too!

  9. So much wonderful stitching, I especially love the long wrapped sections in blues and greens, it looks like a caterpillar amongst leaves
