star


this has been in my mind since the stars a few posts ago..have you heard the story where the girl has married the moon and she goes to his house in the sky? there is a wide plain, and there are lots of people kneeling with their bottoms sticking up and their heads in the ground. later in the story she taps on one persons shoulder and he lifts his head. in the ground there is a hole, and she sees the earth and her place. when the being turns around and looks at her, she sees that he has only one huge eye in the middle of his forehead.. he is a star

off to bed, long day tomorrow, solstice storytelling begins. I'll post about that, I promise..

Not heard that story before...loved it and I think giving your star legs was a perfect added touch.

Wish I was there to hear you tell the solstice stories. Probably any stories. I like your new story cloths, too.

Great storytelling Manya!

I love your star! Same kind of star on my December journal quilt.
Mine got a spiral "heart" first and than a face. And then I thought: it looks more like a winter solstice sún
(actually the sun IS a star ;-) )

Wonderful blue, one-eyed star ... and the story to go with it!

(If you'd like to hear an old Swedish Christmas tale, dear Manya, I've posted one tonight on my blog.)
