I dyed these various shades of yellow and orange from the meadows of wild goldenrod blossoms that I hand harvested from. Other blossoms like coreopsis and marigolds I grew in my garden. At a time of life when I feel metaphorically like I am in the midst of winter I gathered this bouquet of woolen yarn together and I found beauty weaving this blanket which I am gifting. What a blessing these simple flowers which once brightened my garden and summer day's again brought their joy into my life. If only I could be as beautiful as they are. Isn't that God's plan for each one of us? I take comfort knowing everything moves in circles. Winter is passing and spring will come. "Weeping May endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5 I see more of God's great love for us in this circle of life. "If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." Anne Bradstreet in Meditations Divine and Moral. A special thank you for my precious daughter who modelled this blanket for her uncle in the forest near our cabin.
