spinning



"She sent the children to fetch fluff from the cottonwood tree, and stray bits of sheep's wool, which they found stuck to fences or thistles. She spun the fluff and wool into neat skeins, later to be dyed and felted or knit into new winter hats and cloaks."

procrastinating

I haven't made a gnome in a while. But I am very happy with this one, and might be on a new spree...

Mrs. McMoon's Magical Quilt

Birth of the Corn Mother

An illustration of the Penobscot Indian creation myth of the Corn Mother. 


"She was born of the wonderful earth plant, and of the dew, and of the warmth. Because a drop of dew fell on a leaf and was warmed by the sun, and the warming sun is life, this girl came into being, from the green living plant, from moisture and from warmth. "I am love," said the maiden "I am the strength giver, I am the nourisher, I am the provider of men and animals. They all love me."
