The solstice cloth is finished. And I just deleted a long comment. A comment explaining that I don’t TRY to create cloth that has an indigenous–perhaps Native American look to it. In fact, often I try NOT to–and I’m stressing the “try not to” here. Because often it seems to happen on its own.
The center of this cloth was asking for the lines around the sun. I wanted to do something else–something whimsical maybe, but something that wouldn’t look like this. But the cloth wasn’t having it. Everything–every other thing–was contrived. So here it is. The cloth stayed true to itself and kept me honest as well.
And we’ve had a few glorious days of NM blue sky with breeze. Breeze. Another word that sounds like itself. The evenings have been really cool and so my morning slug-fest hasn’t been yielding many critters. This is good. I think the indigo and beans will be o.k. if they can get a little growth on them during the next five or six days. And the strawberries are just coming on like crazy
