Our family's version of Day of the Dead, Dia de Muertos...we lit candles, we remembered and talked, we laughed and ate and crafted...y mucho mas. (More on the way we do it is here.)
Eleven of us made little wooden shrines decorated with paper, paint, moss, sequins, butterfly wings, skeletons & skulls, stickers & flowers and much more. I finished glueing sequins on mine yesterday and then made a nice dandelion latte using instant dandelion bags and coconut milk. It was good.
To symbolize going into the dark at this time of year I'm stitching on the pathways moon cloth with black thread. I absolutely adore the color black on natural linen. The cloth is starting to fill up, this is the tenth of what will be 13 stitched pathways for each of 13 moons.
The full moon tonight symbolizes fulfillment and fullness, something I most certainly am feeling right now. I am wishing you a full cup, a full heart...and much more.
