wander

sari silk on muslin ~ waiting to be stitched...

i'm feeling my way 'round the notion of having two blogs; finding what feels right as i seek a new point of blogging/internet equilibrium. tumblr is insanely (yes, that's the word that comes to mind) inspiring, but it's not a good place for leaving comments or asking questions... i'm going to try posting shorter, more frequent posts here. if i can do it there, why not here?

i've been working a lot in my little moleskine lately, mostly adding pogo prints, but also some drawings. seeing our old cat, jerry, gaze longingly at the counter top (too high for him to jump up to anymore), i thought how much he’d love some flying shoes…

  2. Ditto...I love visiting your blog to see what you are doing and leave comments.
    I love your new idea!
    Those flying boots for your cat are so cute. I need some for my dog Oakey (15) who cannot jump up onto the bed for a snooze any more.

    So happy you're back here too.

  8. I think Tumbler is for looking, oohing and aweing - a quick fix. Blogger is for connection and discussion, a slow cup of tea and a visit. I am getting to know you and the other tumblers in a different way over there. I love seeing what grabs your eye and heart.

    I didn't even know about your other blog. That just shows you how unobservant this drawer is!
