Today at 5:28 pm I was...

I was reading Textiles Today, an interesting and varied survey of contemporary textile/fiber work from around the world. This particular image from the book is an interactive installation by New Zealand artist, Ani O'Neill. My wagon wheel coaster made from leftover Merlin linen/wool yarn seems to happily fit right in.
And today I was wearing a freshly-made Julia cuff, design by Robyn Chachula. The yarn is Berroco's Seduce, soft and lovely. But black sure is a real pain to photograph sometimes.

Word of the day

Benign, adj. 1. Of a kindly disposition; gracious. 2. Not malignant. 3. A good word to live by for the day, and year. And next half century.
