woolen owl pennant

The listening owls have been in hibernation in a dark closet for a long while. But it's time now for me to be reminded of this message every day again.  I used the owl pennant pattern here at Moonstitches -- inactive at present, but still very much worth visiting. They consist of scraps of wool, linen and vintage buttons -- soft and sweet.

I gathered most of my smaller stones and crystals together. Following some of the meditations and exercises in the book Sacred Stones and Crystals, I hope to listen to and discover connections with this realm of Earth called the Stone People.

The 13 Moons have finally found their way onto a wall in the sewing room. Home at last.

Thanks for coming by and happy weekending. xx

I'll begin stitching a moon cloth this weekend in celebration of the full moon on Saturday. I'd love you to join me with your full moon art -- stitching, writing, photography, knitting, etc.! Just leave a link in the comments anytime over the next two weeks or email me a file to be posted on the drawing down the moon page (on the sidebar).

What fun owls!! theyd make cute little xmas decs too surely, individually or as a banner!
The stones look inspirational......I can imagine the well being they offer...must find you a couple more hole-y stones to integrate for this new year.
The canvases look really impressive hung that way x

The owls are so darling and carry such a good message...important. And what a nice collection of rocks etc.

I can always count on you for an inspiring and up lifting post - thanks! I love the stones gathered together. I wonder what it is about stones/rocks that draw me in? The owls not only are adorable, but their message is so important. I spent some time out in the cold gray day yesterday. I wanted to listen and determine how many different bird chatter I could hear. I never did count, just listened. :) Your moon paintings gathered together are fantastic! They are so cohesive as a group and beautiful. Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
