My plans for this tapestry included lots of yummy embroidery,
color and pattern all over the place
and a chance to mess around with recent dye experiments.
Then I finished my strand of black
and couldn't add another stitch.
Is it really done?
I have no idea
but have to let it be for now.
This is a little hard as during this absurdly busy season
I get great satisfaction from crossing things off lists.
Packages mailed? Check. Tapestry finished? Check!
Leaving something (possibly) half done makes me antsy.
But in my maker's world the work calls the shots
and my plans don't much matter.
It could also have been a form of procrastination on my part because I really don't like wrapping (or unwrapping) packages,
even with the fabulous collection of handy-dandy-quick-and-dirty-and pretty gift bags my friends and family pass around and around to one another.
The shoes are mended for now (Check!) and my feet were dry this morning
despite swirling flakes and unshoveled sidewalks.
So now it is time for presents.
And on this first morning after the solstice
here is one for you, my dear readers,
A coloring page
