I spend as much time as possible mending lately.

 I spent the entire summer and early autumn walking, walking, looking and gathering, gathering beautiful plants.  I took them back to my studio and made dyes out of them to dye embroidery threads.  I am using those threads in a huge embroidery project that  I'm very excited about.  But the work is slow, slow.  Very very slow.  I can stitch all day and only have a couple of inches to show for it.  So, be patient with me dear friends and patrons.  I will have more work to show in time.  Meanwhile, stitch.... stitch.... stitch.... .  What a wonderful way to spend the rainy season.
