the slug & the squirrel
10 31 12

the slug & the squirrel is one of my most favorite internet places.

they create tiny, magical worlds, inside of antique treasures.

fairylands of dew & moss..

really inspired by these folks..
plants are quietly powerful. a whole family of them was gifted to me recently.
i put them all over my sewing room..
little leaves and vines twining over treasures & tattered lace.
they really transformed it, visually & energetically.
nature is my number one inspiration, so i guess it
makes sense to immerse my workspace in it. :>


land of the t-shirts.. + miss Tobi Veil
10 21 12

i’m making some neat patchwork t-shirt pieces lately..
the one above will be finished & available in the next couple days.
really in love with the colors, i’m missing fall leaves at the moment.
that pageant doesn’t seem to happen in the bay, sadly..

tobi is my newest muse and sewing assistant. i found her a couple months ago
living under a sink, very small, sick & filthy. oh, and Fierce!
she’s now reigning princess in fabric land, lounging in mountains of lace.
one of her favorite activities is go through my boxes, picking out treasures to play with. :)

some of you may have noticed that the diary &
about page contents have disappeared. but don’t fret ;)
the about page will be back Soon, in an updated fashion..
& the diary, well.. it just felt a bit too full.
i’ve been feeling like starting anew here for awhile.
and finally decided to make some space for it.

gibbous has existed for about 10 years now, and the site for 6!
which is quite astounding to me.. there have been many shifts &
mutations over that time, but none quite as transformative as
what’s been happening over the last 2 years.
it truly feels like a new era.

i hope to use this space regularly to share photographs,
stitching thoughts, inspiration, and finished pieces.
there is now a sister page, also.. minostalgia.com
which is also a work in progress, but will be a place for my
other creative ventures.. of paint + sight + sound.

lastly, i want to say; *. . :: . Thank You . :: . .*
to all the wonderful folks who have supported me over the years.
through your friendship, patronage, sweet notes & treasure packages..
you’ve all helped to make this a reality, and i’m very grateful.
i’ve been spending a lot of time lately looking forward
and looking backward, & am often filled with a feeling of awe.
it hasn’t been easy. but it has been Beautiful.
& the best is yet to come.
