Sunday morning I played around with new stones
thinking they were going to be grey
but perhaps because it is the bleak mid-winter
the stones turned a warmer colour.
This piece is inspired by Mark's paintings of
stones disappearing under water.
He is brilliant at that.
For both of us scenes like this bring up whisperings of
summers spent on beautiful Georgean Bay.

By Sunday evening I was happily couching away.
I have based the background onto an old blanket
and it is like stitching butter.
The one thing about this kind of stitching is
it allows for mind wandering
as I stitched these delicious rusts and browns
my mind whispered memories of
my beautiful Rusty Pups
They are dearly missed
As are their antics and adventures.
And then as I prepared this post
A photo demanded to be noticed
So much like my new stones.
I have a teacher who always says the piece you start next
should always be informed by the last piece you did.
Perhaps this means my next piece will have to be seaweed
in the colours of my Georgean Bay stones.
But I already have soooo many new beginnings just started!
But my mind is flowing with ideas on how to go about a seaweed piece.
It is so easy to have many ideas isn't it
The days just aren't long enough for their execution!
I hope you have a day rich in creative ideas.
