mojo bag

Has anyone seen my mojo? I seemed to have lost it this week. Aside from a few great parties, my string of bad luck has yet to break - death, by pet and by car, has stirred things up a little in the past two days. I guess that's why I was so motivated to finish my little mojo bag - I need to get this thing filled up!

I have lots of nice crystals and majickal bits and bobs I plan on storing in here. What makes it truly powerful is the process done with intent - essential when creating a majickal tool. And we all need the best tools we can get!

Plant dyed raw Cotswald from Simmy; spun in sacred space on my little rainbow drop spindle. You can look at old posts for pictures. I knitted it from the idea in The Twisted Sisters Sock Book; it's just a sock really, with the end decreased twice before drawing the string through the bottom and pulling it tight. I didn't do yo's for the drawstring, but Navajo plied some of my first merino handspun and threaded it through with a tapestry needle. The little plant dyed felted cutouts are not sewn on yet, and I have more I might add somewhere.

I think it's kind of neat. And it's my first fiber - to - fo!

Little P dressed Lucy up the other day. Here she is getting the prize for World's Best Good Girl Dog.

And here she is, cheering me up. Ah, that's better...thanks for the kiss.

I have helpers all around me.

What a wonderful bag! Sorry you are so down, but the magik in the bag should help wonderfully, especially with the help of that lovely ballerina that gives such loving kisses.

We'd love to have you join us at Rainbow Dreams! I've added your name to our participant list.

I post every Monday, but a number of the group are doing Gayla Maxwell's 21 day e-course as well, so you can sign up for that if it calls to your as well.

I love that this virtual sisterhood is making wonderful connections right around the world.

I'm sorry I haven't been by for a while and look how much I've missed. I do so love the bag and can't believe that it's the Cotswold. Most people use it for felting and I've never seen it spun and knitted up. It really has turned out so nicely.

I wish I could come and spend some time drop spindling with you - I need to develop that skill and now haven't tried it for a year (cos I've been obsessed with dyeing and it seems to have taken over my life somewhat).

Hope things are well with you all - my teen has calmed down a bit (or maybe it's me) and we're having some nice times together. We're all off on our trip on Thursday ......
