textile love

while textiles carry enormous meaning for me
i assume only a few others have this sort of passion,
and they number among my friends and colleagues,
both at home,
and interwebbishly.
here's some work that is very tailored,
very storied,
very layered.
dare i say, very feminine.

friday was farmer's market day in canton.
this is what i scored:
sari silk strips
marilla o'brien and andrea castle were womaning their booths, 
happily spinning
and i am madly prepping for washington

green chair

my parents were rich in daughters. 
there are five of us, two have died, and never any sons. 
i am the baby, by over a decade. 
my mom called me bonus, but i know i was, shall we say, surprise.
one of my sisters moved to the north country several years ago, after staying "home" a long time, then living out west for a short time, she settled here. 
and friday we had tea in her fine new apartment, and she gave me these little treasures.
these please me, most especially the chair. 
thanks, claudia.
