So, on a cold and rainy day, Kitty and I set to work. The trick is to choose nice sturdy sticks that have great random angles and twiggy nodes. We used our rainbow yarn that changes color every so often. It’s important to always use quality yarn and well worth the extra few dollars for the beautiful results good yarn ensures. It’s important to me that Kitty and I work with yarn made of natural materials… wool, alpaca, cotton. There’s something magical about working with natural materials… it’s a warming and authentic experience and if you are going to spend the time making something, you might as well respect it enough to make the whole experience as meaningful as possible.
As we worked together, wrapping tightly our sticks, Kitty and I talked about what colors we liked best and why. We thought about what each color means to us and what it makes us think of. Our time together is so precious and I value these bonding times with all my heart. Getting to know her as she blossoms in to a beautiful person is a true gift of motherhood.
And, to make something beautiful together is a gift too… aren’t they lovely!
How do you bond with your children?
Blessings and magic,
