the weight of time

Posted: July 18, 2016 by Mo Crow in It's Crow Time

old-treasuresthese beautiful treasures are gifts from friends, the single finely knitted glove is from New Zealand, the red stitched cloth is from Germany and the soft leather bound book was found by a gardening customer in an old abandoned house 50 years ago
tassels the tassels are beautiful!
old-cloththis beautiful 200 year old hand woven cloth from Germany was given to me last week
old-cloth-detaillove how the reds are all but gone…
will make two or three big cushions once the Crow Show is underway,
everything is falling into place by the day with less than 7 weeks to go…
& thank goodness for the gardening, it keeps our feet almost touching the ground!

    The past can be an encumbrance, but it is also a treasure chest. How weightless and insubstantial we would be without it! All of your gifts are marvelous. The handwoven cloth especially makes my heart sigh.

    I do love how heavy these cloths look to be. The weight of time indeed. x

    Treasures indeed … I love that these things have been given a new lease on life by coming to you.
