Winter Blocks

These all part of the imagery I am working towards on the winter panel of the sleep pattern quilt. Posting them here to remember. First photo - my husband called me out at dusk last weekend when he saw this - imprint in the snow of a bird's landing.

Season by Season

The sleep pattern is still bouncing around in my head. Thinking I can make a quilt panel by panel season by season and put them all together after a year or two or three and have something BIG. I started a "Sleep Pattern Quilt" category in the sidebar. Thanks for the comments on that first post on this. I liked Catherine's comment about a net/dream catcher and am thinking this all over stitch pattern would unite panels of the different seasons/colors/cloth in the end - hold it all together - like a net. I am taking Jude's contemporary woven boro workshop over the next few weeks and hope to create some panels for this utilizing her techniques. Really excited about that.

Today my oldest biggest boy will be 7. So today is all about a party. He is growing up and sweeter than ever. He is amazing. It's going to be a great year.

Lots of snow here, on the ground and in the air. Ideas stirring up from these shapes.
I like the way you can recognize the shapes even in the fragments and incomplete ones...

the differences from one day to the next.
