Today is the full moon so I gathered a few things together for a February moon cloth. There's not really any plan yet, just some colors and textures that seemed right. I like to sink my hands into a big mess of soft cloth, don't you? It would be interesting to choose by feel only, with eyes closed. I might try that sometime. I'm studying the Ikea catalog to create better storage in my sewing room but for now, all the colorful strips and little bits are in an old dresser drawer on the floor and all the light bits are in a wire basket.
One of our amaryllis bulbs shot up 28" overnight (it seemed like!) and began to bloom. It's on the kitchen table by the window and we ooh and aah over it like it's a new puppy. I've started my annual houseplant grooming sessions, thus the hoya trimmings rooting in water. All the plants will get a trimming, some fresh planting mix with a few nuggets of dry dog food buried in there (for nutrients), and a nice shower in the sink.
I continue to kantha stitch the red and white woven intended to be a pillow cover -- with a natural linen backing, I think, but one trip to a fabric or thrift store could change those plans.
Today is a full moonday in the sign of Virgo. A full-moon time is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate things in our lives. And we don't need to have big accomplishments or major events to do this -- we can simply remember something that gives us a sense of satisfaction and contentment -- or maybe just notice something nice. Inside or outside of ourselves.
To a nice week for all of us. xo
