magic feathers

keep your mouth shut guard the senses and life is ever full open your mouth always be busy and life is beyond hope Tao Te Ching Yesterday's circle stitching was learning how to make magic feathers. The feathers are for Jude Hill's beautiful internet quilt gift project.

Jude's blog, Spirit Cloth, is one I visit regularly. Her imaginative genius with stitch and her spiritual voice keep me believing in the good power of an internet community.

Jude has made an excellent video with full stitching instructions on how to make one of these magic feathers. Just click on the magic feather graphic in the sidebar to read more.

We'll be making more next week at our circle. If it's not possible to attend, it's still possible to contribute a feather. I'll send a bunch to Jude before the end of this year.
