Lots of sewing work, loss of photo editing ability, and a crashed hard drive since the onset of the new year have kept me quiet.

My work for clients has allowed a bit of creativity, but I have not created anything for myself. Looking for inspiration, I took my camera into the woods to record whatever appealed to me. Thinking that I wanted lines, textures, and shapes for stitchery, it was easy to take 40 photos fairly quickly.

I love these holes – imagine the ages it took for them to develop, and think how a seemingly empty space is still something. Clearly each is integral to its whole rock.April rock hole 1

These are surely part of a fairy playground.
