The Letter W
from An illuminated Book of Cats
by Mo Okiszewski, Rod Morgan and Ariel P Cat © 2010
It was 45˚C (113˚F) here yesterday… my brain melted down but this morning the memory of this page from our book put the heat into perspective with the deep cold happening on the other side of the world, the balancing act as Jude talks about today over at Spirit Cloth, she helps me keep my head on straight!

On Monday our dear friend Penny who is a nurse and the most caring & compassionate woman I have ever met had a football sized tumour removed from her ovaries as well as a full hysterectomy and laparotomy, she sent this photo yesterday looking so well! When I heard the news that she was going into hospital I stitched a prayer into every one of those 300 little red x’s for her crow nightie/dress made out of an XXL Old Man Crow t-shirt, so happy to hear this good news!
then I received news that another dear friend Eliene who has the biggest & most caring heart is having some deep seated trouble with her lungs, so I sent her Moon Unit I via Express Post, should arrive Monday before the bronchoscopy on Tuesday
May you be well (((Eliene)))
May you breathe with ease

Liz Ackert is stitching so much love and peace into our beautiful broken world
(click on the link to go over to her blog!)
she sent me this photo of her pennon in process, her stitching is divine!
she has gifted me so many beautifully stitched and dyed cloths over the years we have known each other online
she is truly mending our beautiful broken world with Love and Peace
her rust dyed key cloth and 60 count hand woven linen inspired the Key Book
& the Imagine Peace pin is real magic, it helped me keep a lid on it one dark and stormy night
Liz is such a rare treasure I truly hope we will get to meet in real life one day!

Fiona Dempster sent three of her hand printed Imagine Peace weathergrams with such impeccable timing! One of our favourite gardening customers has been put through hell this year, the new upstairs neighbour has been so awful she decided to move, found a place just up the road, bought it & put her lovely home of 31 years up for auction on Saturday but in a strange twist of fate the awful neighbour bought it… way too hard a deal so we invited this brave woman and her gorgeous cat to stay at our place until the bathroom is renovated in the new place, we need to Imagine Peace!
and Deb Lacativa sent these two strands of her “dirty” thread! I have lusted after some of this magic thread all year since watching Hazel, Liz and Grace make such “wild peace” with it! look forward to having a go as soon as I finish Once in a Blue Moon
magic is afoot, love really is the answer

I dream of a world where love is the answer
mending our beautiful broken world stitch by stitch
with deep gratitude to this magic circle of makers
