While perusing her blog I found a link to "The Magic Feather Project". Feathers have been a recurrent theme in some of my art quilts. Needless to say, I had to check out that site also (http://spiritcloth.typepad.com/spirit_cloth/the-magic-feather-project.html). In childhood I couldn't leave a found feather behind. Some are still with me today.
I was so moved by the project that I set about creating a fully hand stitched feather of my own on 100% wool, and...and...and...here 'tiz :-).
Have a peaceful day.
