second window hanger



finished. i don't know if the string that goes
through the middle will be visible when i send
the pic to blog or not. but it is just a plain
hemp string that is separated into individual
fibers at both ends. there are also 3 hidden
things. i am unsure about these hidden things,
but...they are there.
after it arrives at Wendy's and the children
have it, i will talk about the 3.

because of the size of the window hanger, the
invisible baste needs to be done

here we go





this fabric is amazingly wonderfully wonderful.
it was a skirt i found at the thrift shop years ago
that i got just on a "feeling"...a kind of frumpy
skirt but something about the pattern....
woven like the one i made for myself in the first
Cloth to Cloth. Cut out. now to invisible baste
and see what all it wants.
this is the second and last window hanger for
Wendy's children.
the little butterfly being may or may not stay. am
trying to remain really empty of intent until the
basting is finished.
oh sigh.

falling in love


i fall in love with
with how my house
receives light
how things i love in my house
receive light

this time of year

when the morning light enters
in the most uh, Sure way,
as if it is seeking certain
things and places it remembers
from past years at this time
of the circling round

i surprised it by setting two
jars for it on the window ledge
on left is New Mexico Olive
on right dried heads of a native flower
i can't remember name of right now..
they are glowing
