Making Spirit Owl Potholders

Spirit Owl Potholder

Yesterday I did the clearing and  cleaning.  Today my studio was ready for me to begin something new.  As I was putting away and organizing the two boxes of fabric that people had recently sent me, I came across some of the older fabric I had too.

I looked, but didn’t make any decisions.  I wanted to leave that for a fresh mind.

Today I walked around my studio looking for fabric to use to make another Raven Pillow.  But what I found instead were the owls.  I toyed with a few other ideas for potholders before that, but when I picked up the gray owl it unquestionably felt right.

The owl seemed ghostly to me, all gray and white. I knew it needed to be in the woods.  So I found the fabric to keep the feeling.

I designed  five Spirit Owl Potholders before Jon and I took the afternoon off to visit the Clark Museum in Williamstown MA.   I still have more fabric and I can’t wait to get back to my studio to make more.

I don’t usually work on Saturdays, but I can see going there tomorrow for a few hours.  They are calling to be made.

  1. My husband and I live in a small city near a good sized park. Recently we’ve been hearing owls hooting at night. It’s such a lovely sound.
