In this coming month of June, The Magic Feather Cloth we call HOME will leave here and start a new life. I've plans to continue this project in a new way come January. I will be posting more about the finished cloth and its accessories before they travel. The story of part 2 will unfold in the next months as I gather my ideas. I look forward to the next leg of this journey. Thank you to all you PieceMakers for this round of giving. I feel warmer and fuzzier as time goes on.
A white stone in the center of this cloth thought is needed.
The rings of my basket are like ripples. In space. Like ghosts of breaths taken.
I will ease into Summer with fewer postings. More Space. I have finished the Feather Cloth we call Home and now I need some quiet time to prepare it for travel. Collect, recollect its story. I will share more photos before it flies. I have spoken to Wendy. How long it has been. How much of this crazy life this cloth holds. How this is good. We are ready.
A lot of things will keep me somewhat wordless for the summer. For those of you who are subscribed, I will set my Small Journeys postings for Wednesdays, What if Wednesdays. Small Journeys will continue through Labor Day (Sept 7) at which point the series will end. And I will embark on some bigger journeys.
I took some pictures of the moon through the trees. And even though I couldn't get the camera setting right, I liked them. Like ragged holes in the sky.
They reminded me of these. Holes in the earth.
Which on this cloth are also holes in the sky.
This morning the cloth we call home was a curtain. Hanging between me and the bright morning sun. Useful. Shielding me. But at the same time filtering through the cloth to help me complete this Ring of Vision.
It is interesting to be mending the cloth with holes. New eyes. Space. Less.
The Man reduced the size of one of my worktables. To better fit the now Warmer back room. More space. Space has become my new and most important tool. Easily said. Just cut a third off and move the legs over. OK.
8 hours later. Rebuilt. Big job but Good. Sealer still drying.
Alphabet Soup (remember that one?) Washed and drying. And still not done. Soul-o used it as a bed over the winter.
I will be back to Small Journeys tomorrow. (For those who are subscribed and have patiently waited through my April break).
