calendar cloth pillows


It worked. I tapped into some of that growing-moon energy and finished up both a book and a pillow. The pillow top was woven out of cloth strips and then kantha stitched -- the back is creamy, delicious hopsacking  (I first started the top way back here). I stitched on a month of calendar cloth to mark the time of year -- funny I don't really care to record the exact year but the point on the wheel of the year, now that's I want to know and remember. Must be age. The book was Winter of the World by Ken Follett, second in a trilogy. Next up is All That Is by James Salter, has anyone read it yet?

I noticed the pom-pom'd pillow was made in the month of April, too.

The full moon is tonight so I'm thinking green and white for April's little moon cloth. Green for growth and white for snow because that's pretty much what it's been like outside up until yesterday. I'm really not complaining, water is precious here.

There should be some nice dandelion and nettle greens ready to pick today. I guess I'm craving green. xx

I love the woven pillow. Yes, the weathe is keeping me guessing. We had a killing frost Tuesday. No walnuts this year, I fear. Today is almost 80 with higher temps this weekend. Then back to cool. I have seeds to plant! :) Have a wonderful weekend.
