When my friend Cindy wrote to me that she wished I could patch her up like I did my old pink chair, I told her I wished the same and that I’d know which fabric to use.
Then she asked me for a picture of the fabric.
But I couldn’t take a picture of the fabric, because it was something I’d imagined. I knew the fabric would be colorful and have animals on it surrounded by flowers.
The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to find that fabric even if I had to piece it together.
That’s when I thought that since I couldn’t patch up my friend like I did my pink chair, I could make her something patched together with the fabrics I’d imagined.
First I thought I’d make her a pillow, but I couldn’t picture it. So I sat at my worktable, closed my eyes and waited for something to come. That’s when I saw the goddess doll.
I made her up as I went along, listening to Bellydancing music I stuffed her with roving from my sheep Zelda and Griselle and gave her lace hair.
Tomorrow I’ll send her to Cindy.
