unpicked

 
I have been circling for a thousand years
and i still don't know if I am a falcon
or a storm
or a great song

large emptiness winter

 
It's really awkward and heavy.
It's really new - do I love the white horizontal stitching?  I still need to know that.
I do love the paisley back with white big thread.
Maybe it wants some couched lines.  Maybe it needs to be quilted in the ditches.

It's not going to Mexico with me.

softer

 
 
when you meet that person
a person
one of your soulmates
let the connection
relationship
be what it is

it may be five minutes
five hours
five days
five months
five years
a life time
five life times

let it manifest itself in the way it is meant to
it has an organic desitny
this way if it stays
or if it leaves

you will be softer

from having been loved this authentically
souls come into
return
open
and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons

let them be who
and what
they are meant

aunt diana's Indian shawl

the cloud in me
large emptiness small marks
not to know but to go on
sun moon stars
red thread II
cross my heart
manitoulin circle project
story quilts
millennium journal
stitched paper
red thread I
vulnerable
the house with the golden windows
paintings

these are the 14 portfolios I have been sorting all weekend for my new website
