Late Bus




Dusk happens suddenly these days. I walk up the hill after the late school bus comes through Avalanche. The woods is settling down, a few birds call, a cardinal chip-chip-chips. Two deer run across the road in front of me, their white tails flagging. There is a bow hunter in the woods.

My bench cushions are woven and shipped now.  Still some pillows to make and  sew together tomorrow.  But now, there are a few of my Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms leftover, and some red wine, suppertime.

Your things are enough to make me want to learn weaving. :}

I agree with Entre Nous! I just inquired about renting a small loom for a week to try it out! Where you live sounds so beautiful!

Susan said...

Entre Nous, and Kathryn, How exciting! At least to give it a try.

Your photos and your work are gorgeous. Love the silhouettes of the leaves and the dusky pink colour of them amongst the green.

What an awesome bench cover! I could use something to cover my weaving bench. It's be perfect to weave it!
