This project is beautiful...
have you ever noticed that the very best, I mean the art that moves your very being...you inner
soul is always a tribute to
nature itself. These milkweed pods
are amazing and so are their tender cargo. You have captured this seed pod perfectly.
This plant has a secret place in my heart...thank you for sharing it with all of us.



I'm without words. Margie, you are a beauty "maker/worker" ! You probably have a relationship with Mother Nature ...

Hi Margie
This is a beautiful art piece with such wonderful rhythm in it. I totally agree with Rane, the first comment, that the most moving Art focuses on Nature.
I don't think we have milkweed plants here (?) in UK so I looked them up on google images and the pods - aren't they amazing?
Congratulations, you've created such a beautiful tribute to this plant.


Thank you Margie, for introducing me to this precious plant & its seeds, I didn't know about it. (including the fact that it's the sole food source of Monarch Butterfly larva)
This project is one of a kind & you must be proud to be part of it. Your contribution will be such an important part of it.


That is so unique and turned out amazing!

Beautiful! Truly inspiring from idea to execution.


What beautiful shapes, those pods, and they are filled with such perfect little baby seeds. I love everything about your creation!


That is so beautiful, Margie. An inspiring contribution to the project.


You are so creative. I appreciate that you share your thought process and steps along the way. Love the pods and the felt tag too.


It was wonderful to read about your piece in this beautiful post. I really enjoyed the description of your process.

Thank you for sharing the project with your readers.


this is an amazing piece of art. i love that you went to so much trouble and thought so deeply about what you made. the end result is just beautiful.


Margie I just love these. The way you've first crocheted the pods then made them even more cozy by felting them and shaping them. The sweet seeds too, and oh so long. What a wonder you are!


Lovely,so creative. Last year at a guild meeting I purchased a bag of milkweed fiber from a member. I spun it up with wool fiber (it was everywhere!). I incorporated the resulting yarn into some weaving projects, just loved it.


such an amazing piece, i'm in awe, Margie.
