Well the answer to the question "Can a rock be dyed?" is...

(at least not this one, this way)

The cotton gauze dyed as expected, having a hard time photographing the transparency tonight.
More small questions will be asked tomorrow...

hard and soft

Trying to get back in the swing of making stuff...
asking small questions, performing small tasks.

Baba Yagas Hut

Baba Yaga lives in a house squatting on chicken legs. It whirls and and
spins when it has a mind to. In dreams, the symbol of the house comments on the
organization of the psychic space a person inhabits, both consciously
and unconsciously.
-Women Who Run With the Wolves Clarissa Pinkola Estes

A new drawing, one that has been simmering within for quite some time now.

Idle Beauty

Spent a few idle moments tonight looking for the best way to explore the beauty in a rusted scrap of metal.

I have no idea what its original purpose was, possibly a muffler.

Now it has disintegrated and become organic once again.

The seeds on the grass reminded me of herringbone
woven fabric, inspiring me to actually weave them together.

Passing Harvest

I gathered these at the side of the road during a walk today.
I like the pattern they make.

Crosses and Checks

The the checkered background fabric has puckered as I've stitched the hill.

Little crosses are anchoring it back where it belongs.
