magic feather for Jude


Light as a feather and magic to behold. 
Here's my stitched feather for Jude Hill's Magic Feather Project
Reclaimed silk from a blouse I picked up at a local thrift store. Kudzu leaves bound and wrapped within the fabric, immersed in the dye bath at Shakerag in 2010. (Not the silk robe shown in this blogpost). I wore this blouse and then decided to share it with Jude. 
I backed the silk with reclaimed wool from a dismantled wool jacket from same thrift storer.
Look at the feather-shape that appeared! 
I knew this was the piece to send to Jude.

Why not send your own?

Curious? Jump over to Jude's blog and find magic in every piece of cloth she stitches.
