Frost visited the Garden of Misfit Glass, blanketing the shine and catching a rainbow.
When things break, you can throw away the pieces or gather them together to build something better.
The rainbow inside this heart was created from broken little pieces of glass too small to save. Sending you love this morning.
In a week where my city gave a voice to all members of our community then said, "oops, never mind," it felt good to finish my #welcomeblanket. Made with yarn purchased from three locally owned shops, using a stitch I first learned from my grandmother. This blanket is headed to Chicago to join 2,000 miles of warm welcome before finding a home with a new immigrant to the United States.
It's not too late to knit, crochet or sew a blanket for this project--deadline November 4. Details at www.welcomeblanket.org.

As part of the annual Gateway Arts District Open Studio Tour you can get a behind the scenes look at it all and chat with some fab local artists. I'll also have a community craft project going in my studio and I'd love your help with it!
It was a beautiful night for a motorcycle ride, so I took myself on a little monument tour on my way home from Artomatic. The FDR Memorial was looking a little worse for wear, but the words of a leader never fade.
