Subject: A Very Special MMario Shawl
From: wysiwyg
Date: 23 Mar 04 - 11:31 AM

I know a lot of us are feeling that helpless feeling that we want so badly to be able to DO something for Heather Fielding. Like me, you may be at a loss to know what that is.... so I have asked MMario to serve as representative for Mudcatters, to make a special shawl from us, for Heather Fielding. He has consented to begin on this as a group gift, to make the hugs we cannot offer her in person, but a shawlful of hugs she can wrap herself in... make the comfort tangible, deeper than words we can offer.

Of course I have no authority to have asked him this on "everyone's" behalf, but think about it. Who knows and accurately loves so many Catters? Who else is consistently loving toward all, and sees everyone's best? Who else has a heart big enough to hold each of us, and Heather, together in his heart, one by one, stitch by stitch, and "knit" us together in selfless love? I can't think of a better messenger of our love, than my friend (and many of yours), Leo.

For this shawl, MMario will do a piece for each person who posts "count me in," representing and focusing each individual's care for her as he works on it...

See? It's all about connections, stitch by stitch. It may become quite large..... it might go to festivals and stuff where Catters are, for a row here, a row there......

Leo, thank you. I hope you have a wonderful experience in this.

~Susan

okay - hopefully some people who know Heather better then I (just about anyone) might be able to chime in with a few simple answers.

Does she have allergies to any fibers? would love to be able to do this in something sinfully luxerious - the fiber equivilant of Rick's music.

Colour(s)? All I know is that she doesn't normally pick blue for herself.

From: open mike
Date: 23 Mar 04 - 12:21 PM

this is such a great idea....
and it brings to mind many images
from songs about being wrapped in
a sweater or cloak or shawl:

from Laurie Lewis' "Old Friends"
"Like a cloak against the cold,
I wrap myself in friendship's fold,
..Old Friend, like warp and woof entwine,
each crossing defining the design,
though in places frayed and worn,
the fabric remains untorn"

aned Connie Kaldor's "Someday"
.."Someday, someday, everything will be alright,
Someday, someday, someday but not tonight,
For tonight you'll wrap that pain around you
like a tattered sweater...."

It will be wonderful to feel apart of a big group
hug for Heather, and to be with her and bring a
ray of hope knowing there are so many who care.

Thank you Susan and Leo for offering this gift!
I would like to help in any way I can. Would it
be helpful to encourage as many people as possible
to purchase the recent c.d.? And can someone post
a reminder as to how and where to do this? thanks.

I should also say that of course this cannot replace, nor is meant to replace, whatever people who are close to Heather are moved to do, personally.

(Laurel, I'm headed out to the store for a bit, but a filter for threads with Rick's name should find you the thread on his CD. That's where I will look, myself-- our annual habit is to pick a special, tender project and get all our farflung family members the same gift. It started the year a friend opened a quilt and fiber-arts co-op-- we got a couple dozen crocheted snowflakes as tree decor and sent them to each family member in their Xmas card. The next year it was Mudcatter Keith Johnson's CD. Last year it was Mudcat CD samplers. Our Xmas shopping this year will be all from Rick's CDs.)

Can't think of a better way to give Heather a very tangible group hug.

Geeze....I leave for a few hours and get back to find this....and it's growing fast!!!! This is gonna' be one llooonnngg shawl!!

Say Mario....Can you throw in a row from the Reg Boys? They were wondering if it would be okay. I said you'd do it.They're feelin' a bit low and are out with Paw, Cletus, and Buford. That's probably not good since when they get back, none of them will be able to feel at all.........

One other thing.....Maybe include Cleigh in my row huh? Rick actually blew up his ass once. Now ain't that a legacy? "This man once tried to blow a tune up a possum's ass." Come to think of it, that's not gonna' look to good on me at some point down the road either....."This man owned an Ass-Blown Possum." Oh yeah, that'll be rea............hey! Wait a minute.....As I think on it a bit more, YOU aren't going to be in any great shape either on this possum thing.............Best not to dwell on it.......

Anyway, count me in.

This *is* growing fast - but what should be expected from this crowd?

Here's my Initial idea - A rectangular shawl in filet crochet - With a musical score worked into it as the pattern.

Any suggestions as to a tune? (or would anyone like to compose one?)

That was my first reaction - but there are plenty of other options - knit versus crochet, circular, semi-circular, square.

It could go fancier or simpler. Or could be a lap rug/afghan with SEVERAL staves of music. hmmmmm - that could be done in a more solid pattern and the design workied into it as an overlay...

let's let more people post in with ; let some ideas bounce and we'll see what happens.
