I have begun to consider space as one of the important elements in this cloth. Because I am considering space in general. And its effect on peace of mind. More stones have gathered here, I should be able to post them later today when the temperature drops a bit. Right now I am unplugging for noontime sun. To go sit in the sea. No AC here. And I melt easily.
I will be posting here on Spirit Cloth, just about the progress of Magic Feather Cloth 1, HOME, through June, and then I will be gone in July. Poof. Please hold any new stone contributions until I return in August. Thanks.
I was delighted. After choosing crayon as my medium for marking the cloth. Because of its simplicity and familiarity. One of my first creative tools. I was delighted to find a crayola crayon with the name indigo. I didn't remember that. Not real indigo of course, but good enough for my story. Crayons will permanently stain a cloth. Some of the darker colors anyway. It is best to leave them out in the sun for a while to soften them. I iron the wax out later.
The basket is another simple useful thing. This one is a favorite. It measures about 21" across. From Indonesia. I use it to hold threads and scraps and things. Sometimes I hang it up and look at it . I like it because it is well made by hand and it is a shallow vessel. It holds with a sense of not holding. It creates an easy place. A freedom keeper. I use it to make circles. Not perfect circles. Just soft rings. It rained again last night, I love how the moisture accentuated the knots in the wood making them look like feathers.
