seasonal II

walking in december

The last Saturday of the year was remarkably warm here so took time out to stroll out in a preserve not too far from me: Morton Arboretum.  Finding my beloved Quercus at arms length is not a challenge here and enso magic in a little waterfall.

one more round of circle game

The center of the last 9 patch for 20-13: traditional 9 patch covered with scrim and further embellished with some split stitching. 

A good time to listen to Joni Mitchell.  

Respectfully, 2013 wanes. 


  1. that scrim overlay is wonderful. it creates movement within the circle. i tried so hard to learn to play 'The Circle Game' when i was taking piano lessons but never got there....and the seasons they go round and round.

    1. yes, after all these years i can still sing all to it...it's one that stays with you...maybe because it has a lot to say to us.

  2. you came back.....good. and I almost missed you, my mail only came this minute. It's always so good to see you here....enjoy Joni

  3. "I'm so glad you are back posting". That was my first thought upon seeing the first image that is just so you. I too love that song too, one of my favorites.

  4. ah good to see your beautiful work Henrietta & Happy New Year!

  5. Happy New Year, Henrietta.
    I am sorry to read that your mother has passed. My sincere condolences.

    We must go on.

  6. Mmm.. good to be here in your article or post, whatever, I think I should also work hard for my own website like I see some good and updated working in your site. melange yarn manufacturers
