She decided to free herself, dance into the wind, create a new language.  And birds fluttered around her, writing "yes" in the sky.

a little love on valentines day...

Friday, February 7, 2014

on the table...

it's been a quiet week.  i'm recovering from a nasty flu virus that left me feeling weak.  weak, but not uninspired.  i slept for two entire days, leaving me plenty of time to dream.  

and that is what i did.  i dreamed.  about lovely ideas for a new lace book i am working on.  i dreamed about piles of lace and stacks of beautiful handmade paper that arrived in the mail this week.

and as soon as i was able to, i sat down at my table and starting sorting through all of my lovely bits of beautiful.  i worked on pages a little at a time, going back and back and back again to add something else.

until it started to take shape and resemble a book.

i always love how it looks in progress...the way the lace spills out.  oh, and the light today...the light coming through my window and shining rays of beautiful all around's perfect.

i hope you are all well.
