“Owl encourages you to trust your inner knowing as you evolve and expand into an upgraded version of you” Barbara Techel Animal Reflecttions Healing Oracle
When I think of the owl that showed up in the woods this past summer when I walked with the dogs, I see it as if it were occupying a space that was separate from us.
Maybe it was the owl’s wildness that separated us. Yet now when I think of it, when I picture it, I see it as if it was visiting from another dimension. As if it was veiled in a scrim, like the owls in my quilt.
Somehow the significance the owl still eludes me. The closest I’ve come to discover its meaning is in Barb’s words about trusting our inner knowing and evolving.
But I feel like I’m still working on it though, that there is more here for me.
I began by making potholders with the Owl fabric that Nancy sent me. When I first got the fabric I wondered how I would make it work, all that pale gray and white.
But then it came to me, how it fit so perfectly in the greens and browns of the forest fabrics.
I made it into potholders first then the quilt. And it seems I’m not done. I had one square that didn’t fit into the quilt so I’ll make it into a pillow. Maybe I’ll make more than one.
I’ll see how far I can take it, how far it wants to go.
I have a list of five people who asked about my Spirit Owl Quilt. I’m waiting to hear back from the first person on that list.
