~published!

"My heart gives thanks for empty moments given to dreams, and for thoughtful people who help those dreams come true." William S. Braithwaite I have been published... Yes...me... I can hardly believe it myself... but here it is in black and white and living color. I have been keeping a secret since last July. When I was generously asked if I was interested in having an article published about my blog by a sweet Flickr contact...luvpublishing... President and Publisher Kellene Giloff, of the Stamptington Company and ARTFUL BLOGGING magazine... And it has arrived... the Spring 2010 Issue... Featuring T Does Wool... Words and images.... I hope you will enjoy... they have done a fabulous job... I am totally thrilled.. a huge amount of gratitude I offer to Kellene... and the the magazine editors... for this once in a lifetime opportunity. And a huge thank you all... for supporting me with your words of kindness along the way....

~january indecision

"Then indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost lamenting o'er lost days. Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute; What you can do, or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe January...2010... and here I sit..feet up...indecisive for so long... the holidays have come and gone... and I have sat...delayed... pondered and dreamed... and finally... finally...I have made a decision... I will use the Habu... the tsumugi silk charcoal time to use... use it up... and enjoy... it will be my Japanese Tea leaves ... so I begin...and I will work... and savor each stitch... like a cup of good tea. no need to rush... it is January... a time to be slow.... a time for waiting...for spring... for yarn balls... and treats... from far away... a time to send...and for others to wait...just a little. but a time to seize the moment... try something new... something magical... I will not regret this January. no...I this time I will make decisions... and be happy with them.
