We are all so pleased with the article, Replenishing Your Well,by Lynn Krawczyk. She did a great job of distilling something meaningful from our individual responses to her questionnaire .

When I visited my blog, I saw that I haven’t posted there since May 1!! So much and so little has happened since then. I have finished with radiation, during which time long standing back pain really surfaced. I hope to have it repaired very soon and get back to making art.
I have been going into my studio and sorting through things. This process has been good to reacquaint myself with all the supplies and tools I have there. Too many really! The last sewing, other than a quick mending job is a piece I started was last October in a Sue Benner workshop.
I took my inspiration from a couple of photos taken at the reflection pool at the Houston Zoo.
This is the resulting piece based on the photos. I have been stitching incidental grass on it. I needed some thicker threads but didn’t know what kind I needed, then I found a box of Perle cotton of many different colors, some hand dyed. Exactly what I needed! I had forgotten it totally. I am not able to sit in front of sewing machine more than a few minutes, so may try standing up to stitch on this WIP and get if finished. It is time to move on to some of the things with deadlines that I have committed to.
