It's been trying to snow. That makes me happy.
There is a spot in my heart for the first snow. There are so many false starts here that I get to savour that feeling a few times...
The following pictures are from the book I have been playing in or "altering":
weaving and cutting out
more weaving with stitching
and then some freehand embroidery with a stamp on the gessoed text
the back of the same embroidered page with a blurry stamp that I gessoed over
and a facing page, gessoed as well, waiting for inspiration
embroidering an older piece that I abandoned last winter
as I wait for the gesso to dry and more inspiration to come
Quiet, reflective work
a crow flies by the bare branches of the ash tree
a pale November sky
I smile for you
