incense box turned treasure chest






The little October moon cloth is #11 in a 13-moon cloth sewing series. It was fun to make but finding time for it was not so easy. Because it's meant to be a sewing ritual, it's nice to not feel rushed and to be able to sink into the cloth and the meaning and the actual sewing. I really don't know where my time goes. When people ask what I've been doing I go blank. Maybe I should say everything and nothing. Or on what level are we talking here?

Just realized my little incense box is a perfect container for small treasures. And smells so good. The white lady vase and the plate are old thrift store finds, still in good favor.

What I'm wearing tonight -- it's a new silk tie bag made by Deanna and my name came up for her giveaway. I love it.

Thanks for visiting and happy weekending. I'll be here doing everything and nothing. xo

The bag is beautiful Deanna, lucky you Peggy. I'll remember the 'everything and nothing' answer now, I know my days are full, busy and happy but also go blank when asked what I've been doing. I love your moon cloth, and the little swirly roots are very talkative. Very hot here so a weekend keeping cool and finding some stitching time is it for me.

My memories bring back the scent of incense just by seeing your box. It is like digging in the cedar chest and the scent just takes me back in time. Enjoy your neck tie bag from Deanna. It is so beautiful and just the right size. Happy weekend!
