cloth as blue as the sky


I was thinking about what kind of feather to stitch as I walked with the dogs. I thought maybe a raven feather, being Raven is one of my names. But right at that moment, this Northern Flicker feather revealed itself. A few steps away was the strip of cloth. I'm sure it's from one of my prayer flags even though the park is a ways from my house. Then the chunk of copper, coincidentally the metal associated with today, Friday. Things come in threes.

The feather needs to be placed on blue cloth the same color as the sky here in Colorado. After holding all my blue cloth up to the sky, I found this denim to be a perfect match.

Happy weekend! xo

When the universe tells you something, it is best to listen. Granted, it sometimes has to smack me upside the head before I do.:-)
I have a few Flicker feathers and they are my favorites. So colorful for such a shy bird.

What a beautiful gathering of colors and textures.
Love the copper color and the Northern flicker feather.
Denim is such a classic, character- filled fabric.
Wishing you a Sunny blue skied weekend : )

Love these colors. The flicker feather looks like it could have been dipped in black ink.

Thank you, feather-loving women -- one thing I've learned is that a feather is not as easy to stitch as it looks! It's humbling.

Thank you, Tammy -- flickers are such generous feather-givers. Maybe wonderful things are always there, we just don't always notice them...?
