On this clear quiet day in May, after a bit of dream catching and life getting in the way, I have begun the ground cloth for the first Magic Feather Cloth. I have gathered some sky cloth, indigo, some dyed by Glennis, and some dyed by me, (after taking her class where she shared her secrets so freely). I think it is a good start, an open space based on sharing. A combination of thin cotton and linen. Soft and light. Space . Place. A new beginning. A sense of Old Sky.
This blog will now be dedicated to this project. For as long as it takes. For those of you who have contributed feathers to this project, please email me if you see your feather featured here as the story unfolds. I want to add a bit more information about you to the journal that will accompany this gift. You can email me using the link in the sidebar.
There are so many feathers, I think we have the makings of many cloths. So I will just keep going until I use them up. To balance the lightness of sky and feather, I will need some stones, as mentioned here. I am looking for something tiny and simple. Like the one picture above. Just a 1- 2" square of cloth, natural fibers only. With a stone ( never a perfect circle) applique in the center. The applique needs to be turned. Like this.
Please keep the colours stone-like in feel and the background undyed or neutral/naturally dyed or blue. Soft or old cloth that is easy to stitch through would be nice. You might make one or more . Email me for an address if you don't have it already. There is no rush and no deadline.
