    The cupcake apron I finished up for my daughter yesterday! I also made the poodle skirt for a play she was in last year (Bye Bye Birdie).

    Re: Sewing

    I've been making lots of little drawstring bags lately, for (dry) snacks for the kids, and other things, mainly from old clothes and left over quilting fabric. I also bought some oil cloth, to make bags for (wet) snacks and sammies. Pants pockets especially make front or inner lining for a bag, because then you have a handy built pocket without doing any extra work.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Knitting

    These are two of my recentish knitting projects. A hat for a very generous and lovely person (rumour would suggest he resides on this forum) and my second pair of socks which I'm wearing as I type.

    I'm extremely proud of the hat - bordering on a little smug and self satisfied.

    (Now... can I make the images work. I could barely manage the old website!)

    That's an especially nice hat, Maythe...
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    It is a rather good specimen with a particular fondness for cuddling the heads of alchemists I believe :P
