Driftwood + Seaweed Slouch

Ever drifting, drifting, driftingOn the shifting Currents of the restless main; Till in sheltered coves, and reaches Of sandy beaches, All have found repose again.

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow from the poem 'Seaweed'

This bag.... A labor of love, countless hours upon hours stitching & dreaming of the foggy gray coastline, walking in meditation, heaps of scarred driftwood that have seen the world, good stories kept in silence, tangled up in seaweed, it's most trusty drifting companion, draped beautifully giving itself to dryness of the land. All these thoughts and images of my day dreaming mind and methodical hands incarnated into the lovely Driftwood + Seaweed Slouch.

Driftwood Goes to New Zealand

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted.... Lots going on, so much so my head is spinning... we're getting ready for a move so my shop is closed for the next couple of months but I did want to post a few snaps of my latest Driftwood I was able to stitch up before putting the lid on the sewing supply box ~ she will fly away today & is headed to a gorgeous place named Nydia Bay in Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand... What an adventure she is going to have!  Hope you have a beautiful life little Driftwood in your stunning new abodes with your sweet partner, Norma.  Bon voyage!

ps.  here's a link to On The Track Lodge in Nydia Bay for those wanderlusting...  if I find myself in New Zealand one of these days, I will be sure to stay here...
