another landskin blankie




a felted landskin blankie
is a fine thing to have stuffed into the suitcase
it doesn't weigh very much at all
provides useful padding for the wandering cauldron
and keeps the drafts away at night

i didn't take one on the last trip
[cos i didn't have any to spare - the last bunch had all found homes]
but
am hoping that there will be some cool nights
on my next trip across the Big Puddle
so made myself a new one

it has some recycled cloth in it
a fine layer of merino prefelt
stitching on both sides
and then it was rolled rather a lot
in a damp state
[no soap]

and
now
it smells like
Eucalyptus crenulata
quite
delicious

    A nice talisman from home to bring with you on your journey! The colors and smells of your land.... a security blankie of sorts. Have a safe, delightful trip!
