The Blue Enchantress

Kaia has become smitten with the Juniper series by Monica Furlong.  She decided, like the main character in the first book, that she wanted to create her own cloak.  Over the past month and a half, she has been cutting, stitching, harvesting, and producing an amazing creation.

Of course, we didn’t plan to sheer the sheep and weave the wool, like Juniper did.  We just went to Jo Ann’s fabric store and bought some :-)  But, she did harvest herbs from our land to stuff in the secret pockets. (Lavender, thyme, lambs ear, rose petals, and a few others)

 

And she used a button that Toby made for her out of Maple and Black Walnut.

And she made the button loop out of yarn that a friend of ours spun from her angora bunny.

I think it’s fabulous and I’m so proud of her!  She’s quite a lady!!

  1. Kaia it’s so beautiful. You look like a woman of the woods in a story. Very mysterious.

  2. I could just cry with happiness, I have been trying to remember the name of that book for months so that I could introduce my little girl to it. Came to your blog through Cordwood Construction’s Facebook page and I am so glad I did. Just like your girl, Juniper’s cloak captured my imagination as well and I never forgot the story I read so many years ago.
