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,

after it arrives at Wendy's and the children
have it, i will talk about the 3.

this is the second and last window hanger for
the little butterfly being may or may not stay. am
trying to remain really empty of intent until the
basting is finished.

with how my house
how things i love in my house
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
