“when you go backwards,
you get more time.. forwards makes
time go double-fast”

(a quote, formatted to fit this haiku, from my wise father, at futsal practice)

wavy tree and bark

It’s a good thing I’m almost done with haikus… if I continued for another year at the rate I’m going, I’d skip every day! I don’t think I skipped a day until at least June… but October and November got bad. I was determined to add in my missing haiku (only three or so now, plus those long-awaited vacation posts!) before the end of the year, but that’s tomorrow. And tomorrow I’m taking a day trip to the Baltimore Aquarium! So we’ll see how it all works out…

making things

please, never forget
how much you love to make things.
making makes you whole.

quilting time

end-of-year wind down:
look back and be thankful, look
forward and prepare.

quilt patches - the pinks and peaches

Still working away on this quilt that I started back in 2007… it’s almost 2010 now, and I’m still piecing together patches for the top. I ran out of half of the fabrics, so I’m having to substitute with similar fabrics, fabrics that I say have a similar “blur value”. It’s a good project for right now, since I’ve got all the materials here and plenty of free time to work on it.

I’m also almost done with haikus! Just a few more to go and I’ll have 365… can’t say it’s been as easy or as quick as I expected, because there were lots of days where I had no idea what to blog about. I am relieved to be close to the finish, but I probably will miss it soon.
