Since I have been talking about knots in trees it reminded me of the roots of trees which in turn reminded me of this…..When my three younger children were around the ages of 2, 3, & 4 we would go to buy a meal and they always wanted “root deer” to drink. Of course in the beginning i would try to correct them but they insisted that the drink root beer was “root deer” So, for the longest i let them call it that. It was just so sweet to hear their little voices. There were so many other precious things they said and did but, for some reason this memory remains so clear. In honor of this memory i made a cloth for my (spirit) cloth:
Yes, I normally sketch out what i am going to embroider or paint. Sometimes I will use disappearing ink or chalk directly on the fabric. This time I asked my youngest daughter aka “littlest one” to draw a deer for me.
I still have more to do on this piece…she needs her french knot nose!
I thought I would try weaving some fabric today.
I had a scrap of an old pair of black bluejeans that I decided to use.
lastly, i found some of my favorite things….
its just the little things that make me really happy. I found some incense and a candle. There is something very peaceful to me when I sit near a campfire or fireplace or even a simple candle. The same with incense. oh! and i am picky about what kind of candle or incense i use. This particular candle and incense is Nag Champa.
