This is some linen dyed with black walnut hulls. This has been my constant companion, knowing it could not be finished before May 31st kept me working slowly and mindfully. Incorporating moments big and small.
The moss from our mother's day hike memorialized in thread. I also added an old washer I picked up in a parking lot and a bottle cap. The cap has Reed's on it. Dear hubs name is Reed and I put the cap on this to remind me of a tender moment. He is Republican and I am a yellow dog Democrat, sometimes I have to remind myself that I love him in spite of that.
I also discovered the work of Jude Hill and her wonderful blog. Her work is so delightful and her observations on life so thoughtful. I especially love her beasts. I decided I needed to create one. I decided my inner beast, at least for the last week has been a really pissed off bunny rabbit. I have named this "The Terrible Awful No Good Hare Day."
Everybody needs a needle book so I made myself one. I have planned a couple of slow stitch projects for June. I will continue down this rabbit hole
