A January thaw
brought water sweeping through the pond....
and filled the stream to bursting....
and forced water to find a new path around rocks that edge the stream
starting erosion in a new place.
Let's hope it doesn't form another pond!
But as you can see the snow is back.
Stones are snug and warm in the studio
just laying around on table tops.
The first stage of bringing stones together
is simply pinning them together in pairs.
Then they get pinned and sewn together in rows.
I am elbow deep in 365 stitched stones!
The real stones hang around together at one end of the studio.
The leftover fabric scraps are at my feet.
I am thinking these might edge the final piece/pieces.
I hope all of you in the northern hemisphere are warm
and those of you in the southern hemisphere are keeping cool!
