Women are the primary resource of the planet. They give birth, we come from them. They are mothers, they are visionaries, they are the future. If we can figure out how to make women feel safe and honor women, it would be parallel or equal to honoring life itself."

Week 4 : Winter is the best time

Winter is the best time
to find out who you are.

Quiet, contemplation time,
away from the rushing world,

- David Burbill

This morning was blustery!  Even the winter birds were hunkered down in their nests.  The girls arrived and settled in with a cup of hot cocoa.  Mighty S brought some of her paintings to show the group.

The last project of our 2017 wintry workshop was a loom knit scarf.  A perfect project for a cold and blustery day.  The girls picked out a skein of yarn that they liked and we talked a bit about how to use the loom.  The zippy loom is a terrific tool for making quick and easy scarves and blankets with bulky yarn.  With a little practice you can make a scarf in 15-20 minutes.  At that rate you could easily make a basket full of scarves and give them to a homeless shelter ( holiday hint ).  

Zippy looms can be purchased at Michaels or any local craft store.  We used this chunky Boho yarn as well as Isaac Mizrahi wool blend skeins! 

*There are LOTS of tutorial videos on the Zippy site if you forget how to make to make the scarf!

Mighty N, stepped outside in the fresh brisk air to knit for a spell and she looked so lovely with that wintry light illuminating the edges of her hair.  I asked her permission to capture the beauty of that moment and she agreed.  I'm so glad.  One of the great joys for me during Mighty Girl Art is getting to witness these luminous souls being themselves.  And they are all so wonderful and have their own unique gifts.  

As you can see, the girls did an outstanding job on their scarves!

After we finished the scarves we launched wishes for a new season using flying wish paper and afterwards we made s'mores.  Due to the wind advisory we were unable to have a bonfire, so we got creative and roasted our marshmallows over candles.  We even had a little extra time to get inked.

Have a great winter, mighty ones!!!  It was a joy creating with all of you.  You all did an fabulous job on your projects.  Thank you all for blessing me with the gift of yourselves!

Until we meet again....

Made so & rooted by love,
