Weaving

Originally inspired by “Soulemama“: {this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a simple, special, extraordinary (sometimes just silly) moment.

Acknowledging Earth day in a way that made me want to take a slower pace today

earth day

Finding ladybugs and making a habitat (for 24 hours), reading a beautiful book, creating flowers and then letting my daughter’s imagination and some extra paper create whatever comes to mind

Can you find the child hidden in this picture?

A finished basket weave dishcloth at the knitting group…done by my daughter. Just after I snapped the pic, she snatched it away and said that I’m “not allowed to see it again until Mother’s day”.

So much to honor in this beautiful little day on our beautiful little earth

Butterfly Migration (Into the Barn?)

knitting

What else does a barn girl do when it’s too dark and cold in the evening to ride any longer but knit by the woodstove, right? Or under the lights in the tack room. Or in her bed in the middle of the night when she’s supposed to be sleeping. She has returned to her favorite (and surprising at one time, but no longer) obsession of knitting and sewing. Perhaps children, too, feel the small sadness in the changing of the seasons as it gets cold fast and the sun sets earlier and earlier. She has started knitting butterflies! I’m quite impressed with this girl.

Sewing 3

The holiday work has begun as she says she is making a butterfly for everyone on her gifting list this year. Ambitious, and yet very likely to be completed well before December even hits knowing her.

Sewing

Did I mention she is also covering her walls with them? Tacking them on right into her tree!
