The Finished Refashion from Sunday

Needlework is so therapeutic.  I put some swirly embroidery around the edges and cuffs of the sweater I refashioned earlier this week.  It was more for my benefit than for the sweater’s.  But I think the sweater’s better, too.

And finally, Midge gets to stop being a hussy and wear a few more clothes.   

It turns out that the sweater’s made of acrylic, not wool as I originally thought.  I normally don’t buy synthetics.  Still, as the sweater doesn’t fit me, I like how it turned out well enough to put it up for sale in my Etsy shop.  

I’m driving over the Rocky Mountains into Idaho tomorrow for a weekend-long, middle-school soccer tournament.  May not be posting for a few days, as I’ll probably play dead for a while upon returning. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Blogger’s Confession….??


After sixteen months of blogging, I don’t know what DH means, or DD or DS. 

I get Husband, Daughter and Son.  But what’s D? 

Dear?  Dog-face? 

Inquiring minds want to know.

Walt Whitman for Earth Day

Montana sunset Missoula Clark Fork River

EARTH! My likeness!

Though you look so impassive, ample and spheric there,
I now suspect that is not all;
I now suspect there is something fierce in you, eligible to burst
For an athlete is enamour'd of me--and I of him;
But toward him there is something fierce and terrible in me, eligible
to burst forth,
I dare not tell it in words--not even in these songs.

Give me solitude—give me Nature—give me again, O Nature, your primal sanities!



Walt Whitman

Clover’s reminder for Wednesday: 

Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul.
