i mentioned nearly a week ago that i was playing around with something new. a little patchwork pouch, stitched up with natural dyed silks and linens and strips of cedar bark, hanging from a length of cordage from more cedar bark and a few lengths of super soft merino wool. while i love to make stitched creatures and hanging art pieces, there is something about handmade items you can wear and keep close that really appeals to me. i have been making clothing for many years, but i've only tried ornamental pieces here and there. i know it is something i will continue to experiment with.
up early tomorrow morning to head south, so i will wish you a happy weekend now. hope the shortening autumn days still allow you to get out for a bit of fresh air and exploring the beauty of the season!
