"Queen of Arts" - Mojo Doll

Today was a day that I had committed to quilting but I first felt compelled to clear the end of my work table.  I got off to a running start in putting things away but then I came across a small, but beautiful, piece of purple fabric. Also on the table was a pattern I had cut for a small mojo doll but had never got around to making it.  Ah ha, the purple fabric was perfect.  There went the quilting commitment and a while  later, "Queen of Arts" was born.   Here is her majesty on a variety of backgrounds.

Peace Feather

A few days ago, Nancy, of Pomegranate Trail blog, mentioned my prayer mobile ( Of course, I had to take a look.

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 (  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, 'tiz :-).

Have a peaceful day.
