I’ve been playing with new ideas, and shared a peek over at Luminous Traces today. It just so happened that our theme this week correlated very sweetly with my recent handwork.
There are three new woven pieces on display at the Crowell Gallery in Newfane, VT from today until September 30th.
…and is now the Luminous Traces Collective!
Summer is a most glorious time of year to re-start this collective project. We have a full roster of contributors and near-daily posts! This week’s theme is Animal, Vegetable, Mineral. If you enjoy creative prompts, please do consider becoming a guest contributor. Follow LTC, as I’ll be posting a call for guests later this week, with a preview of the upcoming weekly themes for the season.
If you are a friend of LTC on Facebook, you may have noticed that the “Collective” part of the name is a new addition. Luminous Traces is becoming the name for my own personal photography work and shop (coming soon!), and the Collective is the group project for challenging, creative fun.
So, I’ve been busy resuscitating that, and also making plans for the next Rest of My LIfe. I left one hint already…perhaps some of the rest can be inferred, but I promise to expound on that very soon.
Remember when this blog used to be about yarn? I’m thinking about spinning some this week…
I’m already out of the Tour de Fleece before I even started. Oh, well.
FSF is a weekly ritual of sensual reflection. Play along if you wish, in the comments or link to your own blog. What is striking your senses this week?
Tasting: Fresh green garlic. I thinned a few plants out of the garlic bed and chopped them up, greens and all and added them to cubed sweet potatoes for roasting. Perfect.
Touching: Roots and thorns and tender leaves. Transplanting is the word of the
day week month.
Smelling: Lilacs, lilacs everywhere. Dizzying, really.
Hearing: Night creatures. The sounds that disappear from November through May have returned to lull me to sleep.
Seeing: The miracle of wood bending and not breaking. So much wind this week.
Feeling: Frustrated. Disappointed with the results of my job search, so far. I know it takes time and perseverance, so yeah…carrying on and all that. Hot cocoa cure tonight.
Oh, and I’ve also been here this week.
Growing, growing is the topic on Luminous and Literary Traces this week. Enjoy.
In the sunshine, even!
It may be a little while before this happens again, as we’re headed into a cooler, wetter spell of weather, but I was pretty darn pleased with the Spring-sweet colors that resulted. In fact, I probably won’t turn on a dye pan again until Fall…why bother when I can have rainbows under glass on the deck railing?
I promised some updates, and they’re coming, throughout the weekend. Here’s one for tonight:

Back to FSF (Five Senses Friday) next week!
Oh, and I am also here today.
Enjoy, and happy Friday!
Over here today…
Check out the work of the rest of the LT gang while you’re at it, too. The Spring topic schedule is being formed right now…please be in touch if you are interested in becoming a guest contributor!
I am here today.
Come see what we’ve been up to…
