So dear Gracie is out of the woods. She actually came upstairs to lie on my bed this morning! Now, getting back down those stairs was another issue altogether, but she is making steady progress. The vet still couldn't say for sure what caused the paralysis, but he was leaning towards a spinal embolism. She should recover completely we hope. Thanks for all your kind words and good wishes.
Two more marine critters are finished: the seal and a grey porpoise. Just the sea lion to go, and the rest of the rhumblines, and I can unveil the whole crazy thing.
P.S. I see some Russian android has been using Pinterest to visit this blog hundreds of times in the last couple of weeks. Wonder if anyone else has noticed this. Is it dangerous, do you think?
I'm an artist who has been making stuff for 30 years. I used to spin, knit, weave, quilt, design, write, embroider and garden, and I still do most of these things, but for the last few years I have been focused on stitching images from Canada's first natural history, the Codex Canadensis.
I try to live a life of minimal consumption and maximum creation. More and more, I see how these are connected.
