my crochet patterns – random ramblings

Most of my patterns are improvised as those who view my UFOs and FOs on rav know by now. My main modes of fiber expression have so far been designing quilt patches mostly from handloom fabric (from India), crocheting with handdyed/handpainted yarn which is mostly (even if not always) handspun. My so-called knitting project frogged […]

Happy winter solstice

Happy winter solstice to all! Whether we call it that or not – whatever the reason any and all of us celebrate – can it be the objective truth that the stars do – in this time period and in relation to the planet earth – align in a particular configuration on this day – […]

sinking sinking…thinking aloud in public again – research/writing journeys

[my initial instinct is to put this post on my LJ and/or in a private setting – and maybe I will change this into a private setting later…even here] Being part of multiple contexts – as I immerse myself here, there and then there and here – following the connections – I am once again […]
