Fund raising

In the interest of trying to offset my many medical bills and since I’m feeling better, I’ve re-opened the etsy shop.

These two quilt tops (tops only, quilts are not complete) were hand sewn by my grandmother.  I’ve cherished them and stored them carefully, always thinking some day I would complete them.  Its just not going to happen.  I have one that is complete and that will do me.  Its time these lovelies found a good home with a quilter who will treasure them also but also complete them.

Surfacing

Goodness this has been a long 4 months. And in 2 working days the slow month of August will be here, finally breathing room at work. Which means I will relax more easily once home.

I’ve been having some conversations with some witchy friends of mine from my past, from slightly different paths. We are talking about what we want now that we consider ourselves ready for something more meaningful, more focused, less focused, what do we want, who do we speak with, what flips our switch…. It has been a highlight for sure.

My left wing is still causing me some grief and I’m itching because drawing, stitching, burning, knitting, crocheting, all are problematic for me… But healing is coming soon.

I finally got it together enough to post my 5 newest boxes on Stitch Witch Cottage Etsy. Whew! They’ve been ready for several months I just wasn’t finding the energy to get around to it.

Stitching in the flow

Recently, the Witch of Forest Grove posted a photo of her tarot deck in a lovely still life image on her Facebook page. In it was a pouch I made that she eventually made hers.  This photo manifested 4 new custom bags.  It can be a challenge when someone wants one “Just like hers” when my goal is to make sure everyone gets something at least a little bit unique. Luckily living in the now and letting the organic process flow makes it easier and also I’m not who I was when the first bag was created and so my style has shifted.  There are similarities but the differences are there too.

This little one is for me to replace the bags that were stolen from my art showing last November.

Put A Bird on It ~ Silk and silk/wool threads, velveteen apllique, on wool with vintage white silk lining. Included in the shot but not the bag is the deer skin I obtained from a Makah bow hunter I ran into many years ago.

These following bags are the commissioned pieces. I thought their new owners would like to see a taste of things to come.  Almost complete, they need their cords and “tassels,” some of which will be actual tassels and some will be deer skin tassels, all will be beaded with semi precious stones and perhaps a charm. Ladies, they will ship Saturday, July 7th.

For Chris ~ cotton velveteen, green/purple dupioni silk, perl cotton, amber bead, gold brocade silk lining with vine pattern

Also for Chris ~ Wool with silk, wool felt, and cotton velveteen applique, horn beads, perl cotton, blue/purple/red changeable silk lining

For Allison ~ cotton velveteen, green/purple dupioni silk, perl cotton, amber bead, gold brocade silk lining with vine pattern

For Nikiah of Red Moon Designs ~ bone stag with bone and horn beads, vintage silk velvet snake, vintage white silk lining.  The rest is a surprise, this bag is special….

The Big Burn

I’ve been working hard to get a few pieces that I can put in my Etsy store.  I would love to have a larger inventory but for now, 4 pieces should do it. Since my prices aren’t for everybody my inventory probably won’t diminish over night which gives me time to work on more pieces. Every day I’m working on something, this is The Year of the Burn.

Here is a taste of what I will be offering at the store opening on March 21st, the spring equinox.
