an instrument of intuition and spontaneity."

The Just Dream mandala is officially finished! This colorful bit of cotton embroidery began in January with a hand drawn mandala on the reverse in blue fabric pencil. It bloomed through small bursts of work through the first half of the year. You really can do magical things in the pockets of your days. You don't have to do everything all at once or even in the same month. Just make progress on something each day. I finished the curvy swirlies and added twinkly stars too. It's a keeper! I like the back just as much as the front. That's so fiber geeky.

Having lots of projects running simultaneously lets me match the work to my mood, work space, concentration, time etc.
