Yes, working with stones again
Stones sitting on stoney ground
We walk gravelly paths every day
the Rusty Pups and I
Young pups just fly over any rocky impediments
I, on the other hand, at my silver-haired age
have to carefully navigate my way over such obstructions!
Working with needle and thread is a commitment in time
It is like bringing up and loving a child
It all takes time but not only time
It takes love and patience
Loving the back as well as the front
Loving the mistakes as well as the perfection!
And so it flows
The colours of nature are sheer perfection
At this time of year here we get final burst of colour
Winter will bring whites and greys and soft blues
and happily Spring will bring us young greens and bright daffodil yellows.
The Rusty Pups don't care what colour anything is
They just want to smell it....
and eat it if we let them!
