powerful magic from Arlee Barr arrived on the doorstep yesterday afternoon
with a note
and a magic pouch
for holding dreams
Arlee’s pennant holds such powerful magic
with superb stitching
holding deep power with love straight from the heart
a beautiful celebration of the power of women
and the power of the moon
such rich colour in her hand dyed threads
dancing with the gathering
with so many conversations going on here!
and then from the other side
the power is so electric my hair is standing on end!
love how the conversation changes with the different sides revealed
Arlee has described her process over on her blog
