|Boundless II, 2011 (commissioned / sold)|
I had a quick talk with Jesica and we both thought it would be great to stitch the wildflower border in a variegated thread. That would bring it all together I think. So that will get worked on this week. I just need to go out and find the right thread to go with all the colors.

I can't stop thinking about Saturday night. The kids were in bed, and I was out for an hour watering the back & front yard, and the gardens and the beds... it was our night to turn on the taps (long-running mandatory water ban here). The sky was darkening, the clouds were darker, the fresh cool wind came up, and I did not want to go back inside! I stood at the window looking in at my husband watching TV, and I said through the glass, "I want to stay out here!"

That's where my soul is fed - out in the open. I think that's why when we bought a house here, I needed to stand in each room to see what it looks like out the windows. That was the first thing on my list - BIG windows. Even my machine is at a BIG window. I need to see the sky. That's why I had to move back to Saskatchewan. I need to see far. Then my soul feels unconfined. That's when my creativity just pours out.
(I know - you've seen this soooo many times, but LOOK! It's limitless.)
