Such a special day. Ethel, a friend of Tini's played her exquisite harp for us and recited some beautiful poetry....my favourite was the poem "Ethel red". We had such a beautiful, peaceful afternoon on Tini's farm, with a little bit of humour thrown in with the reading of 'Ethelred".. everyone was quietly happy.
Finally...... I put together the backing for my cloth for Magic Diaries. I am really happy with the backing. Last visit to Ziguzagu I found the large floral piece of cotton cloth. Very old, but still quite sturdy and perfect for my cloth. I have added other vintage kimono pieces to the edge to make it a bit larger. I am very happy with my backing and can now start to place my pieces .... I have been dithering, but this backing cloth has set me on a path.
These two special pieces are now living at my home..... "Mistress of the North". This beautiful art doll was made by Dee Mallon, there is something so very special and spiritual about her as she watches over my home. The little feather in her hair just happened to be on the seat when I was photographing, perfect adornment for her.
And the beautiful black bear, her companion...... I bought from the blog, Fog and Swell.... visit and see all of the other beautiful creations, all nature inspired, in cloth and stitch. I love his red wood cord from the woods near his original home. Both beautiful blogs , please pop by and visit!
Sending JOY your way .....
