"Look", said the feather...

"it's a rainbow. I wonder if this rainbow will be my friend". Feathers don't see rainbows the way we humans do. They appear to feathers as concentric circles of color.

Another feather on its way to Jude for the Magic Feather Project. There's a free workshop there and you don't even have to sign up. Check it out. Everyone needs a little magic in their lives and it's for charity.

Hello rainbow
Hello feather
Hello feathered friend
I just got to read Fridays posts on my dashboard, having spent the better part of the evening hours constructing and correcting my'Moon Madness' post. I don't have the strength or eyesight, nevermind clarity, to even click on the Friday Feather link. Later today (since it's already Saturday) I'll have a go at it, after gardening and other chores. Your work is so lovely.

Deanna, this IS magic for sure! I thought the circles were little bits of cloth...genius. And beautiful.

I see these glorious feathers everywhere...they are so delicate and appear so fragile.
