Happy New Moon All!
It is a bit cold and very dreary here today in Baltimore. Although it may be harder to get out of bed on these days, there is a certain magic in the air. For one thing, photos seem to be more ethereal and mystical.
As you are probably aware we have established ourselves into a Full Moon ritual & we hope that you enjoy listening to our playlists as much as we like creating them. We decided that we should give the other bookend of our moon cycle something special as well: New Moon Goals!
Serendipitously as we were discussing this idea we received a package of fabrics we had ordered to test a new line of scarves (thicker, for the greying seasons). How beautiful? We received a collection of new fabrics just in time for the New Moon. As the days progress and the moon grows we will fill up these scarves with color, pattern, and love. We are so excited.
So onto the goals themselves:
1. Experiment with madder and its possibilities.
2. Try our hands at shirokage - white shadow shibori.
3. Plan our next Spring exhibition by creating mockups and dye samples so that we can better investigate sculptural form!
4. Connect with other makers and shop owners in the local Baltmore area and participate in more events!
What are your goals for this moon cycle? Let us know in the comments below!
With love & light & beauty,
Ashton & Claire
