Wanting to enjoy a bit of fresh air this morning, I opened a studio window and heard a now familiar sound coming from below it.
The neighborhood wild turkey family was out for its morning stroll. The proud mom and dad have 9 little ones...which actually aren't so little anymore. They venture through the yard a couple times a day searching for food and leaving me gifts of feathers in return for birdseed.
Speaking of feathers, Jude Hill, cloth whisperer and author of the Spirit Cloth blog, has a wonderful project called The Magic Feather Project. In her own words,
The magic feather Project. What is it?The Magic Feather Project is a collective stitching project focused on creative sharing and giving. The magic feather has been my personal symbol for almost forever. With the idea of making it a symbol of something bigger than just myself, I thought I would share it with you and you in turn might stitch one (at least) and send it to me so I might, in turn, sew a bunch together and put the larger cloth to some charitable use.
Like with the Sketchbook Project last year, I've been following Jude's blog, oohing and aahing over the feathers others have sent in, viewing blog posts about creating them and all the while thinking what a great project to be part of. Sometime soon...maybe after Irene rolls through...my own feather will be stitched and sent off to Jude.
Wherever you find yourself this weekend, be safe. Enjoy.
