Walking on Stoney Ground

Walking on Stoney Ground
Stoney ground makes no difference to Rusty Pups

Who just stream over rocks of every size

I, on the other hand, have started using a hiking stick
to steady me over rough stoney ground.
My stick is just a tree branch but it sees me through.

This piece I thought was finished months ago
but sometimes a piece has more to say
and so I have added to it and renamed it.
Is a piece ever really finished?

Our morning walk beneath heavy laden skies
had the Rusty Pups blending with 
the beautiful rusty marsh grasses
that disappear under the sea at high tide around here.


  1. I think having four legs is sometimes an advantage!

  2. It is a beautiful piece Penny. A stick in the countryside is useful however mobile you are - clearing brambles, hooking branches to pick fruit, fighting off monsters! Great photograph. xx

  3. I love seeing your work and the way you live your life. Thank you for sharing. Rita

  4. You can make something so simple as a straight stitch look like something magical Penny.

  5. I really love this quilt. Your work is always so inspiring for me. Thank you for doing what you do and sharing it with the world.

  6. Your stitching is fabulous and you're right in asking, ' Is a piece ever really finished?'.

  7. You have such an amazing sense of design Penny. Did you every study art? Or this this an innate talent? So happy you brought out this piece one more time to enjoy! And the pups are getting huge!! They must love those early morning walks.
