Keep seeing raven here, don't know why: maybe it has to do with the color of the cloth but raven flew into my mind. Outside, day becoming dark, birds scurrying, thunderstorms coming and raven just is so present...

Grace - I love the way you get SO excited about what you are doing and post multiple times in a day as if you are bubbling over. Love it - gets me inspired to get going on something - anything. Lovely - all of it.

I think something like this would work great! It's like a magical tree... So glad you are exploring the elderberry, I'm loving it too.

Beautiful, elderberry cloth...I love using fabric that you have dyed yourself. It seems to have so much integrity, a certain quality that bought fabrics just dont have.
Loving the journey with you Grace. The fabric does lend itself to stormy images.

susan ~!~ good then, that it bubbles over onto you! i DO
get very happy about things and the odd and interesting thing is that it really helps me to see things on this blog. i would not have thought, but it somehow takes
it from immediately a part of myself some how, to a place where
i can actually SEE it more clearly??
i am so happy when i see your face appear

manya...oh helloooooo...~
what is it that makes it magic?

yes...i am full of wonder about that. i don't know at all, but it
is a very real reality...i am just
overwhelmed sometimes, like today
when i began to see what that
cloth was such a
jude knows......

Deb G ~ i will forever give thanks
for your blog post about Elderberry.
I intend to do as many pieces as
possible before the end of this
leafing season
i am delerious from the dance of
they dye and the cloth...
sounds dramatic, but it is just
a descriptive reality
