Another wonky house under a calendar cloth moon for February's moon art. A wonky eye, too -- this was so fun to make.
Last week I collected a beautiful clump of moss that ended up in a tuna can on top of the terrarium in the sewing room. Come to think of it, maybe it felt so good to stitch the moon cloth because of the plants that are steadily populating the sewing room lately.
That's a felted nest started from the book Knitalong -- the details are on my Ravelry page -- just set up a link on my sidebar if you'd like to take a peek. It's still in process though.
We just used the last of the garden tomatoes in a big batch of soup -- found a package of lamb's quarters from 2011 hidden in the freezer and it was just fine. I'm ready to start planting. So ready.
Today is a new moonday in Pisces. Sensitive Pisces magnifies our yearnings, feelings of empathy, emotions, intuition, imagination -- and any issues around our feet, our under-standing. A new moon is when to plant seeds for new beginnings, new projects, new habits, thinking, reactions, and so on. And to energize our desires by making new moon wishes.
This is one of the best days of the whole year to plant garden seeds, Pisces being one of three fruitful water signs in the zodiac. For me that means sowing seeds of cayenne pepper, woad, and madder into 6-packs today.
And my wish for this week is for greater understanding between all of us. xo
