What started like this...
a basket of selected yarns...
Soon became this...
Don't you just want to touch this?!!
Soon it looked like this...
So many textures and so soft!
A small woven 'medicine' bag.
A gift for a co-worker.
This is the first bag that I've woven a secret message into.
I wrote it out on muslin, like this:
Then wove it right in with the other fibers.
You can't even tell it's in there!
This quote is from a favorite children's book:
If you read through the reviews, you can get the sense of this treasure of a story. It's a loss that this book is out of print, but if you come upon it, pick it up!!
This co-worker and I shared the lesson of this story,
so I also included a small stone turtle in the gift box.
A small card created with a photo of her name on the Gathering Blanket.
Sensory treats from the garden.
Rosemary-Lavender-Rose Petals-Sage-Rock Rose
Can you smell this deliciousness?!!
I think I'll take orders for these!
They are so fun to create.
I especially like the secret message idea.
I won't share all of the secrets though!!
