Feeling my ancestors today. This shawl is Stóra Dimun, I found their pattern in Cheryl Oberle’s Folk Shawls book. The pattern is the genius of womxn from the Faroe Islands and the shaping is brilliant, making this shawl conform to the curve of shoulders in an amazing way. Love wearing them in this old way!

Two more days to sign up, loves! Link in the profile has all the info, be in touch by the end of Saturday if you want to get on this ride for this next cycle around the sun! Here is a small excerpt from the first class “Why would we celebrate the Wheel of the year in this modern age? We live in a culture that has embraced the domination and desecration of the earth for several thousand years. This is mirrored in the way our bodies are treated if you are assigned female at birth, if you’re gender non-conforming, non binary or trans, if you’re queer, if you’re indigenous or a person of color. Regardless of who we are, we are taught to dissociate from our bodies and from the earth below our feet. Under capitalism, most of our energy is going into survival. Under Patriarchal/white supremacist/colonizer/heterosexist western civilization, set on the destruction of all life, it is extremely painful to tune in to the earth around us and notice what’s going on. We are trained and encouraged to dissociate by the over-culture, and it is a useful coping skill for surviving trauma. But I really believe that the foundation of liberation from these old, destructive paradigms includes deep, consistent relationships with our own bodies and the body of the Earth. Frances Weller in his book The Wild Edge Of Sorrow says about practicing ritual, “Living as we do in the belly of a soul-eating culture, it is imperative that we have measures that can help us come back to soul, especially in times of crisis.” So we celebrate the wheel in the modern age to build deep relationship with the Earth, and to understand our human experience in different ways in relation to the earth’s cycles. To connect with the traditions of the ancestors of Europe as well as with the land we currently live on.” Part of this connection for those of us on colonized land is acknowledging who’s land we occupy and that those of us with settler/colonizer ancestry who benefit from white supremacy should be making reparations. 15 % of class fees go to Indigenous lead organizations and individuals. You’ll find links to some of these in the profile as I’m able to redistribute funds!

I consider age 11 to be when I realized that I’m a witch, but here’s me age 4. I kind of want to use this as a head shot.

I’ll be here next Saturday 🎉❤️🎉 This will be the second of three markets I’m doing this season, hope to see you there!! [image description: a flyer for Lowbrow craft fair, Saturday Dec. 1st 11-6, First Churches of Northampton, 129 Main St, entrance across from the Iron Horse, Unique/Quirky/Alternative/made by local artists, many items under $20] #lowbrowcraftfair

I moved to unceded/stolen Chinook land (Portland, Or) when I was 17 years old and lived there for 8.5 years. I have so much love for that land and the surrounding territories. The Chinook peoples are trying to reclaim some ancestral land lost to a broken treaty and are raising money to do so. If you’ve loved this land (and been loved by it), if you are a settler/colonizer and believe in Indigenous sovereignty and making reparations, pitch in and spread the word! 15 % of the money I bring in from my year long Wheel of the Year class goes to reparations tax to indigenous folks and organizations. I’ll be putting links in my link tree as I’m able to donate, so you can check them out and pitch in too!

I highly recommend the Native Land app as a starting point for non-Indigenous folks to educate ourselves about who’s unceded/stolen lands we are living on! I think it covers both so called North and South Americas, lists 921 territories, 887 languages located in those territories, and 822 (broken) treaties. Also, Indigenous sovereignty is something we (all non-Indigenous folks but especially/specifically white/settler/colonizers) should be deeply caring about and discussing all the time, not just around oppressive holidays.

EEEEEE!! Babes!! This is my first ever podcast interview! Thanks so much to @yarrowmagdalena for making space and having this conversation with me!! I have to admit, being visible in this way has given me such an intense vulnerability hangover/anticipatory anxiety. But like with anything I share publicly, I just hope those who listen find something that resonates or feels useful! Link in the profile ❤️🔥❤️ [image description: screenshot of Daydreaming Wolves Podcast page. It reads: Podcast #46 My interview with Miel Rose on eclectic magic and staying embodied. There is a cut off picture of my face at the bottom.]

So grateful for @ali__diamond and @lissajeen for engaging in this life affirming quilting project with me!! We are making 3 quilts simultaneously, all the same dimensions, 42 9” squares and each of us are making 14 squares for each quilt. Here are the squares I made for their 2 quilts. Can’t wait to combine mine with theirs and see what magic is revealed!!!
