I just seem to be joining one swap/challenge after another these days. Anyway, I had joined a “Nest Swap” hosted by Viv of Viv Out On A Limb. I was partnered with a most unique and sweet person; Kai Naconi of Celebrating Christmas Year Round. We were to make a nest that we liked so much that we didn’t want to give away… Kai made me this very special nest in colors I like – pink and more pink!
Kai is half Comanche, and lives a Comanche life. This intrigued me, so I did some research about the Comanche people. I stumbled on this book, Empire Of The Summer Moon. This is how my mind works: Hmmm… what a nice looking man… click… Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History…click…Son of an Indian Chief and a White Settler abducted as a child… Greatest Comanche Chief… sounds interesting… Click… download to my Kindle. Whew, I generally do not read non-fiction, but this book is so far very interesting. If you are a history buff, or just want to know more about the early days of our Country in regards to the American Indian people, this is a good read.
Ok, back to the swap. Thank you Kai for a very special nest! Your care and thoughts in creating it are much appreciated. And thank you Viv for organizing this swap, and partnering me with your very special friend. Here is what I made for Kai. Earlier this year, I challenged myself with making one doll a month. Well, I am going to count this Fairy ( Felt Wee Folk by Sally Mavor) as doll number 1. I just need to make three more to catch up 🙂
