The cloth only needs a bit more quilting. This one was composed by one side developing in sympathy with another. A layered peace resulted. Still light enough to see through. I see those floatingsquare patches. I will bring them through with stitch somehow.
“Heal” – what an apt name for this beautiful quilt. I just needed a moment of quiet in the midst of a stressful week so I came here and rested my eyes on your gorgeous photos. As others have said, I can only imagine the comfort it provides when wrapped within it.
Looks like a tannin and dye source is near at hand! Good find
1st photo Jude, same pegs, same bugs as here in Aus
I’d call that a cicada shell
Noisy buggers all summer!
Means summer has arrived
Cold and very windy here now
Cicada, yes, but my question is, why only in? There should be a million!
A pioneer perhaps
“A layered peace resulted”. My wish for the day, I think (for all of us who need it).
Jude, This is so just right…everything about it…it must feel so good to be under it. xo
Its not a bed sized cloth for an adult. But it feels good.
The “mini-me” in the corner made me smile…and a smile, that is healing. 🙂
Yes, I could use a big laugh right about now…
I think Hickory. Better get a good mushroom identification book if you’re thinking of eating them.
I need a guide…
Healing means the world here.
Granddaughter has the virus. I helped dry her hair after she showered here on Monday. UK ‘Freedom Day’ and the ironic end to restrictions! She became so poorly soon after. Happily Eden is recovering, while we isolate and test.
Grateful for the healing of my broken arm, so I can lose myself in stitch, hopefully not Nero fashion!
Your beauteous ‘heal’ cloth makes three times for the win!
I only know the ”Dickory Dock” kind of Hickory. I wonder if they are connected?
There is never a shortage in the need for healing. It is all that life is from one perpective, until it isn’t. I go to bed counting the ways.
And good question!
earth* wind *fire *water* circle *square*movement* stillness.It’s all there Centred. Heal. Just perfect. Thank you for sharing the process.
ha, it’s what I just seem to do….
Nizzzze! The red border is electric. Whole piece feels commanding … earthy power. Good medicine.
i love the red on this one. the deep red.
Really is stunning and breathtakingly beautiful!
Such restfulness seeps out from this quilt. My mind seems to pause and rest every single time I see it. Oh to be able to snuggle under the weight and healing properties of this quilt. It has rained here every day but two this month. Some just gentle afternoon showers and others a deluge of water, high winds, thunder and lightning. My yard is so wet it no longer drains efficiently and is a soggy mess. The grass has not been cut since the middle of June and is very high, but too wet to cut. My crepe myrtle is in full and glorious bloom though😍
just did a cut today finally, it’s a jungle…
the thinness ‘n transparency speak like a soft breeze. your cloth always looks at home outside, floating in mid-air, on a clothesline. x
I live a clothesline
What a companion Heal is. And useful in offering more than just warmth. A spirit, I think.
surprisingly comforting in its simplicity…
Yes, seasons’ change…and yes, hickory nut/leaves…That quilt!!! It’s like the plan all along was for this moment in time, to hang there in sympathy with that environment. So heartening!
(& So green!—the monsoon has abated here for a few…until next round, ha
but pouring rain is better than raging wildfire, I keep telling myself…
Back to my purple stitching.
(And, I too, have too many questions, sigh)
it is beyond green here, it’s almost like a different place.
Lovely.. this one gives me a feeling of peace. Love the quilting lines and circles.
Oh, Jude… just stunning. Took my first deep breath of the day upon seeing it there in the trees and air. Feel much better, thank you.
How’s the air out there?
uh oh, sounds like Hazel is out West <:-( Wish I could send all the rain there!!!!
Actually, the air is still good here in Seattle. Mentally bracing ourselves with what’s bound to come later in the summer. Last year was awful, and this year’s got a head start.
Hickory nut and hickory tree… turns Golden in Autumn. Do not know much about mushrooms.
yeah I am nervous with the mushrooms
WOW! Right in the heart. Gorgeous. And I love those golden orbs.
I would say walnut <3.
And those colors….so soulfilling
Nope, not a walnut. I know those.
I am not familiar with hickory nuts.
The leaves look just like my walnut “over here”.
it’s sometimes hard to tell in pictures
and the sun’s out!
a good day
