the Cat

Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.

Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)

This will do

My dear friend Willy made some beautiful machine embroider pieces for me some time ago
now I will use it as a cover for a new folded book
I just love these books and now it will have a great cover

no sun today

working on faces in the forest
little moments between work
stitching and creating

a lovely summer day stitching in the sun
more progress in the forest
the birds and a little snail

let it grow

The Forest
by Leonard C.Mayer

The trees stand tall and stately
Surveying their domain
The first to glimpse the sunrise
The first to feel the rain

The flowers add some colour
to mostly brown and green
Their fragrance bathes the air
and makes it smell pristine

The wind sets all in motion
and makes things come alive
it brings the rain and pollen
that lets this world survive

The sun lends warmth and comfort
to all the things that grow
it is perfect for their needs
high noon ore evening glow

The earth provides nutrition
and serves the mother role
Even the air that,s needed
comfort from her heart and soul
