a beast


for a long time into this beginning, the running commentary in the mind
is: i don't want to do this. i don't want to do
patchwork...cutting things, ironing down seam allowances
and i don't but keep going in the spirit cloth way
and then, thinking of the bird that got blonde hair, i
remember saying i am not good at whimsy, but appreciate it in others.

whimsy, and i think i can't but keep going
here is a baby goat.

And she is frolicking in the desert of New Mexico, seeking a little of grace's magic feather grass.

marti...fieldlady...!!! yes! you
are right...feather grass!

grace Forrest~Maestas said... worked..yes...that's how
they are. the same day they are
born, even. i went to my daughters
to see the newest one and she was
2 days old and was spinning, and
flinging herself and ....YES!
that will be her name...!
