bright sun pinned against the sky
but i've been craving snowflakes
so i made some indoor ones
by pressing my grandmother's crochet bedcover
into clay

This is such a beautiful and poetic idea. Longing for snow, we also made our own snowflakes, washi paper and watercolour, covering the windows ...

They are soooo beautiful! When I saw them at first I wondered what was going on - did she rip our grandmother's quilt apart? But stencil it?? WOW!!
You are unique my darling sister!

i love the way
you make things,
and these are so special -
like remembering the smell
of favorite flower somewhere
outside the gardens,

and the skies! yes, dear xenia
right from my window,
the road is loud and wide
but sky is always clear

good night to you
