I have a fondness for the inconsistent greys of birch tools, the shattered flecks of ocean colored glass set in porcelain, the overcast blur of winter light,
the concern of emotion that can be stitched in wool,
the soft glow of linen, the comfort of bare feet, the roundness of tummies,
the milkshake of that pink,
the curiosity of pose, the tiny cotton flower crocheted with thread on that cold morning, just because,
the cohesion of handmade,
and if we can leave pants out of it, let’s leave pants out of it.
It started out in prairie, pretty, but not quite the right color.
Let’s try gentian violet, oh I like this better and it matches the little bag I sewed.
Still missing something, let’s add the funny little brooch Lex made me from one of my favorite childhood stickers,
yeah, that’s exactly what it needed. ♡ You should come closer,
no closer, now you can really see the beautiful stitches. (Buy the way this Merino/llama/silk/linen blend is rustic and lovely and a complete crochet dream.)
If you come even closer, I’ll show you my funny little brooch, it smelled of soap once upon a time when my collection was new, a time when scratch n’ sniff stickers were the reward for a job well done and I was totally obsessed. (This one in particular is a mello smello :)
Finished, but now you’re a little too close, if you would, please back up a bit.
