The last corner, Alphabet Soup, a turning point, became home for Nine for the Fire Inside. And I will throw this thing in the washer today. Funny how I could just go on this one, without saying much more. The cloth holds the going without saying. It has been a while since that is how it went. It's almost 60 degrees here today. I can dry it outside.
As you can see, we did not get any snow. This picture was taken a few days ago when it was still very cold. A lot of emails and texts came in from Turkey, the Man's family asking if we were ok. He took this and said, yes, we are ok and we have a lot of wood. I look like a squirrel. He tells me that a lot.
The Bird Robe is a very warm layer. It has served me well. I added belt loops. Just some braided cloth strips, knotted at both ends and secured by the side seams. There are buttons but sometimes the wind comes in. Sometimes I need to pull it closer to self.
Such a great picture of you in the robe! You have become part of your natural surroundings, the woods and the robe fit nicely together.
yes, they do, I think I will mend it seasonally.
Maybe it’s weird ( I WAS once briefly known as Old Weird Faith), but the first thing I thought when I looked at your picture was Mary Quant, not a squirrel. You don’t look like her, so I have no idea why. But I absolutely love that when I biggened the picture, it looks like you are really having FUN!
yes I am practicing joy. Trying to renew myself.
the loose ombre’ weave of the cloth belt has an ancient vibe. love the long tassel-like ends. something so satisfying about creating one’s own chrysalis…
that’s a double ikat from Indonesia, I posted about it a log time ago, but I will take some better pics.
Cocooning should be taught in schools.
I know you have posted pattern for robe before but could you please consider sharing it once per year? Thanks, Happy New Year to you and yours
The pattern, once a year?
Happy Squirrel in her bird robe in front of her wood yurt.
I look and I feel like a story character.
A Magic Cloth as shelter and a keeper of memories and time. I love it and I’m glad you guys are well!
It lay folded and put away for so long, I am glad it has new purpose. The news was so awful, I felt compelled to say it was ok.
One thing I love that you said a while back was about a cloth, “What are you saving it for?” That has helped me to cut into things I wouldn’t have otherwise and I’m relieved. Tony (19) wants me to use his preemie clothes to make a quilt or a bear. And I reconsidered my white ‘crazy cloth’ (I felt crazy when I started it) to embrace the relief of change sometimes.
19! oh how time is flying…
I almost cut this one up to make pillows, I could’ve, I like the cutting. the relief from the “thingness” is amazing sometimes.
The Squirrel looks happy in her beautiful robe.
always feel good wearing it…it has become a second skin
Nice big squirrel pile 😁
actually, they are living in there.
Oh, I love that fire inside… beautiful symbol. And won’t that quilt smell lovely all sun dried! Like a blessing upon it from the sun. Very cute squirrel! 😉💚
I keep adding stuff, I have to stop myself…
Love these photos of the robe and you in it!! Sometimes being squirrely is such fun!
I love that robe, wear it everywhere.
I usually scowl when he says that but I felt like a squirrel this time.
Cute squirrel in the gorgeous bird robe…..you are just the kind of neighbour I’d love to get to know!
(When I first saw the pic I thought you were stood in front of a small yurt!)
I get looks! ha!
we considered a yurt
And the growing. 🙂 Wood pile reminds me of a UFO.
Just G(r)owing, a collaboration😁. And I look like an alien squirrel .
got kinda lost in your pages and suddenly there she was: Michelle!
was thinking about her just the other day………….and then I realised that she’s no longer with us, thank you for keeping her on board
wishing you a happy new year xx
What a cloth! Where it’s been, what it holds, and where it will go!
And you do make a cute squirrel…
Cannot believe what this cloth holds. 🐿
Oh, the textures…everywhere!
You make a cute squirrel 🙂
All such a feast for the eyes, and soul, and inspiration. Love!
you remind me that everything is so great
