night watch,
a game between human and white tail deer.
after the big snow
down the hill as we say
you can see tracks there.
but more, there are tracks
like a stitcher gone mad
all over my lawn.
made a little later than this.
for me, i am glad it's winter now
and their tick passengers
have hunkered down deep 
and aren't peppering my lawn or
the hill.
or, for that matter,
my tender skin.
 lazy time stitching 
echoes outdoor activity.


  1. Yes, good the ticks are hunkered down! Especially because I am finally getting to the leaf cleaning. I usually rake, but I'm so behind I borrowed a backpack leaf blower and am about to go out and contribute to sound pollution in the neighborhood. EEK!

    Happy stitching, guess its that transition time from dyeing to sticthing? A wonderful Saturday to you.

  2. valerie, thankful the ticks are chilled out. yuck to the blower, but needs must. no, dyeing and bookmaking and stitching, too.

  3. ah the deep comfort of stitch and cloth heart and soul

  4. mc, i have been stitching on this one a LONG time. it comes out from time to time to make me peaceful.

  5. Love how the colors outside are echoed in your stitching ... along with the arcs and lines

  6. liz, inside outside upsidedown. (i think that was the title of a book i read my kids...)
    jude, thank you. maybe it will someday be finished

  7. Lovely stitching Velma that you do in your "lazy time".

  8. love the lazy time stitching. just in and out, round and round.

  9. the dark night, tracks and those wonderful stitches. Nice. Very nice.

  10. jennifer, thanks, i wonder if it will ever be "done"
    jean, yep, exactly
    michelle, these long nights are like that

  11. The colors and the stitching match the colors and tracks outside in nature.. lovely...

  12. donna, i think living here made that happen
