And feel as then the throes of joys gone by,
When I was young, and thou a blooming bower."
- John Clare

The fallen leaves have dyed the water in the pool below the waterfall the color of tea.
I've been spending as much time as I can outdoors. Soaking it up. For me, nature is so restorative. So peaceful. I have a new project in the planning phase, but no photos to show yet. I've just been doing some doodle stitching for the past couple of weeks. Playing around with sashiko and texture. Trying to think of a way to use this textural stitching in my work. I think I've come up with a fun way to use it in my latest project. I'm taking my time. Planning each phase carefully. Trying not to be so impatient. We'll see how it goes.......
