December. Way warm. Hardly need a blanket so far.
In December I will mend. Tend. To the human wrapping cloths as I like to call them.
Get back to blanket.
I put the sketch, altered a bit, here. Again. Blanket. Full-Circle.
There are many large cloths here, some still in process. Cloth I might consider blankets. The Cat Quilt, the Wedding Quilt, the Lion Quilt, Coma, the Magic Cloth, Magic Cloth 2, Holding Pattern, Nest of Days, Sanity. There are also many unnamed cloths destined for blanket status.
I started Spirit Cloth as a blanket maker. I make a note of that today. On this first day of December. In December I will mend the blankets that are in need of that. That patching ceremony for continuing that celebrates "Peace Piece on Earth".
And so I will consider (well, reconsider) Blanket. Because there is something quite important that has to do with blanket. And me as a maker. And it has fallen between the cracks many times. But it is not lost. Mending is a great needle chant as background for (re)considering.
I already added 3 simple patches on the Cat Quilt. I kept the idea of stars in my mind. The blue square patch has been quilted in a star pattern. The small ragged patch, double kantha stitched, always reminded me of stars. And #1? We'll see. I am expanding the idea to Sun and Moon and Stars. I'll patch this cloth with those. They have a sense of eternity about them.
