In May, I did a #KnittingResidency at the magical place known as #NorthfieldYarn Life got pretty busy those last few days, so I didn’t get around to posting final photos of the #Mandala that I made that month. Here, you can see what the window display looked like then, and how it’s now updated to add a mandala fresh off the hook (so fresh, in fact, that it’s not quite finished, shhhhh, let’s keep that entre nous. Maybe no one will notice 😉). The mandalas that I’d been making prior to May featured #hearts emanating out from the center starting point, but working in pink and red (the yarns i use in the #LovePeopleBeKind #Crochet #Hearts). The idea grew so I would incorporate scrap yarn from various knitters and crocheted who find their fiber home at the shop. When I arrived, my suitcase was to the brim with the red and pink yarn. Added to those hearts bursting in the foreground is now a #radiant background, stitched by my hands and with yarn left over from various projects made by other hands. It’s a peaceful and lovely collaboration of materials. As I typed a message about this newly made one, the gifts that spellcheck keeps on giving provided yet another gem. I had intended to say “fun working with color”, but it ‘corrected’ to read: “fit writhing with color”. Go figure. And, I LIKE it.

August1,2021 – Sunday morning….just arrived to one of my favorite places. NRC to sing for chapel. Some #Dvorak, some #CatStevens. I have a blessed half hour in the morning air to sit on this bench, drink my tea, perhaps do another round on the current #mandala #tenkebenk #TeaEarlGreyHot — with Lisa Daehlin, Artist and LisaDaehlin,Singer at Northfield Retirement Community.
