a grey-with-hints-of-purple kind of day










not many words but lots of texture around here.

  1. gorgeous threads and stitching and i am in love with that spindle. if blogging about depression in the first person will help the stitcher to release it and maybe get some good feedback, the stitcher should do it...my opinion.

  3. i think blogging can be very helpful, just make sure you don't do what i've done and use your blog to dwell...i've really done that for a long time now and i'm happy, even if it seems odd, to make myself some form of purpose.

    really don't be down. if you ever need a chat or an email just sound off. lots of people out here who are happy to be friendly, listen, vent back etc.

    offering friendship :)

    1. gratefully accepting and offering in kind :)

      i used to dwell too, then got self-conscious since i was also selling on etsy and it seemed like being a downer would be bad for business. but i also want to be real. i love that your blog feels real.

  4. Some lovely handwork & photos came from whatever place you're in, Drucilla. It's been a bugger week starting with that moon in Scorpio. I'd be happy to read whatever you write! xo

  5. It's a beautiful spindle and fibers I have to say! If you need to share, it seems this is the right community for that. :)
    Take care.
    I love that dark, watery reflection!

  7. Am a big believer in using the power of word as a healing agent. Telling the truth can go a long way to understanding the personal strengths that may be playing hide and seek in the layers of vulnerability.

    1. i really admire your openness and eloquence acey! your blog is so inspiring in this way. i think i need to start slowly though. even figuring out what is "truth" isn't always easy.

  9. The photos in this post were so enticing and full of texture. I loved scrolling down through them, and marveled at your courage with stitch..so honest and strong.

    The text too, so honest and strong. Even the last sentence about depression. You are one strong woman - this will pass, but while it is with you, be strong.

    1. i was thrilled to find yours too, tifanie! and i love that we share some common interests :) spinning very thin is *much* easier on a spindle, but it has to be the right spindle for it...

      and yes, i am so touched that this fiber community is so beautifully supportive. welcome!
