Hi Y’all! New things afoot at the Mother Eagle headquarters. Firstly, this lovely stuff: This lovely, fluffy, dusty, sneezy stuff* is recycled cotton threads reclaimed from the factory floor and will be the new filling for all my creations. The debate rages as to whether polyester or cotton wins the eco-friendly battle, and on the face of it it certainly looks like cotton may be the loser, when taken into consideration just how heaviliy sprayed non organic cotton crops are, not to mention GM seeds. Cotton is one of the major crops of the world’s industrial farming. Then you have...

We bought a new tree this year. I do love a real tree best but for some reason always feel like you can only have a real tree in a permanent house. Maybe that’s to do with not knowing what to do with the tree after Christmas is over, like I would plant it but then be sad to leave it one day. That doesn’t really explain why I always felt like the house we bought and lived in for the last 3 Christmasses isn’t permanant, but whatevs, I digress…So we had a cheap green plastic one, but this year...

Spring Greens Hi all! How are you doing? it’s very beautiful weather here where I am, all crisp and bright and autumn-y. It’s been an interesting couple of weeks in my ‘new life’. Getting settled in my new job which is great and just what I needed. Feels like much has changed: I get enough sleep and not troubled by stress dreams and thoughts.

My name’s Katie and I make things. This is the first sentence to the blurb about me, the seller, on my own shop reinstated on Etsy. But reading it here sounds like a statement from some kind of self help group. Craftaholics Anonymous? Felt Addicts Support Group?? So you know I used to make jewellery as Mother Eagle so you may have known me from there. You may have even bought some jewellery from me. That’s very cool if you have. How are you? Welcome back! AND you know I’ve moved on from silver and gold and sparkly charmy things,...
