Sassy's new obsession is learning
to embroider a finger labyrinth,
The labyrinth guides you through the
through the twists and turns of your
life journey to the center point.
Pause. Meditate. Wait.
Make the return journey.
May 2020 be magical, a journey to
the center and back with new insights
and blessings beyond measure.

The little knitted tree
sits on the fireplace ledge.
Knit in garter stitch with
on a 10.5 needle. It
stands 9.5 inches tall
on a yarn cone used
The Richards' women progressed
from knitting birds last year
to knitting trees this year.
The tree is an adaptation
from a pattern designed
by Susan Baron for Webs.
a nod to using up stash,
adding a couple of skeins
it's an alternative
to planting actual trees
in snow bound New York.
Happy December one and all.

Crossing the river metaphorically and actually... Sassy
turned eighty-one in the company of two daughters
and two granddaughters.
We crossed our beloved Hudson River to visit the
gardens at Bard College. I told the girls that the
river is the legacy I will leave.
We have driven across the river, walked across it on
the walkway in Poughkeepsie and waded across
it in Warrens-burg, New York.Traveled to the
headwaters in the Adirondacks.
The mansion is beautiful and the mountain view
awesome. The garden qualifies as the magical garden
or the secret garden, your choice.
We shall return again to see the autumn colors. In the spring
we shall wear long dresses and straw hats and carry flower
baskets and be ladies of the manor.
A journey for the imagination, a place to savor in memory.

A color study: olive and lime green.
Sequence: dk to lt. Reverse: lt to dark.
Add a red zinger to define the space.
The reversal of blocks requires weaving with
two shuttles, alternating weft colors.
It beats to a pleasant 1/ 2 rhythm not unlike
reciting nursery rhymes.
