going to be saying that a lot around here


meet Ironweed Black Ice Storm

but you can just call me Bice

short for Black Ice, in keeping with the tradition of my predecessors Blizzard & Avalanche

variegated threads...


born in Brooklyn NY 92 years ago

doesn't own a microwave

brews coffee in the old-fashioned drip pot


plays solitaire with real cards

still cuts her own grass on the riding mower

and loves to knit


filling an embroidered tote with variegated yarns 


just because



it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

a croc of a story...


the narrative could be how this croc sprang up 
and ripped a three-corner-tear in my pink shirt


but in reality, 

it was torn by some unknown 
object while zipping through an airport


pink + pirate + Chakra crowns + a monogram 
equals no more tear


arrrrgh




it's just embroidery, have fun with it!

canine companions...

For the first time in 18 years I do not have a happy-go-lucky lab, or labs, dogging my every step, or begging me to throw that slobbery tennis ball one more time.


Blizzard was pre-blog. 
But Avalanche, aka The Hound, has frequently 
popped into this blog’s photos purposely, 
or just photo-bombing the camera shot. 

She was our loyal companion for 14 happy years.

missing Sundermann’s best friend





it's just embroidery, have fun with it!
