“If only I hold very, very still”

n9i_xwhrPXa7OOAXkyDsGtbtwxF9NpYyjsnlolkkqWM3dG and I went visiting last week.  We found ourselves at the home of our friend and fellow artist Vanessa Sorensen for a quick bite of lunch and eventually, some photographs of shy little felted Ginger.

There has been a great deal of origami going on over at their household lately as they prepare for an event to honor Martha, the last passenger pigeon who died in captivity at the Cincinnati Zoo.  There will be a flock of thousands on the lawn of Xavier University eventually.  Ginger was intrigued by their stoic silence and felt like she might be able to make a friend or two…. if she held very still and to hear the story of their downfall.

It was quite cold and rainy on this particular day and so Ginger donned her magical cozy shawl to keep warm and dry.  We both love this time of year.

Ginger enjoyed pretending she had on a long and autumnal ball gown.  Though she worried about getting tripped up in all of the crinoline.

Many thanks to Vanessa for these wonderful snapshots.  It was fun to see what friends Ginger might make if she ventured outside…
