another whirled

as a respite from my own one of the things I've done has been to peek into India's whirled and so as a result took a look outside

at the last possible minute before they all blew off and away, I was inspired to gather
a few leaves from the ground and around
added the leaves . . . maple, Japanese maple, oak, serviceberry, for example, and some avocado peelings . . . to pots with bits of cotton, silk, doilies, some bundled, some not
and so have some slightly altered fiber pieces in a natural dye sort of way but nothing spectacular and no prints. nevertheless a good diversion

Nice diversion. It's so beautiful right now. It's good to be outside and bring some of it in.

Oh so good to see you 'playing with leaves'. May each bit of creating symbolize healing.

I like the subtlety of the fabric. Still sending positive thoughts, prayers and gentle hugs.

I think it is great that you were willing to experiment and try new things.. it will all only get better and better.. nothing lost nothing gained.. live the moments.

lovely photos; one foot in front of the other and you can walk a mile. or a few steps; it's all the same, more or less, isn't it?
you're in my prayers.

Hope all is well with you and your family. xoxo

Your dye experiment was an awesome attempt. Just gathering all of the leaves would be fun--all those beautiful colors and shapes. I've had to do the pieces I've tried to dye more than once to get anything remotely interesting.

Have been missing you and your work, hope things are going well. Stay strong and well!

Yes, but it is good to experiment and try and see what would happen.. and have fun.. and try again.
