It's beautiful beyond words Margie. It's such a pleasure to drop by here every day :)


what a(nother) beautiful project! it is very moving. the fringe border is gorgeous. i like the idea of feathers as messengers.

This is wonderful and you are reminding me that I must go to the Ojibwe museum before it closes next weekend. We've never been and it's a mere 10 miles away.


these are gorgeous, margie. i love the subtle colours you've acheived.


Margie these are lovely and I enjoy learning about the shields. If I was still teaching I should love to make an art lesson around this theme. I bet children would take this medicine shield theme in surprising directions. Thanks for giving us a preview :)


This is stunning, I'd love something like this.

it looks so authentic, so traditional, it really could be part of a museum, that I wouldn't be surprised. Well done, again, my friend. xoxoxo

Thanks for letting us in on your little refuge. There's so much beauty and inspiration in what you do.
Thanks for sharing it.

I love the description of the medicine shield. Too bad these sorts of things are not taught in "western" medical schools. Self-expression (artistic, emotional, etc) and right intention are often times what is needed to move through a difficult health situation. I am fortunate that at Yale University (not always the bastion of alternative thinking), where I received my MS degree in Midwifery, our faculty emphasized such things.


Thank you, Margie, for sharing this little refuge that is also mine. It's a place unique on the world, a forever wonderment ! This medecine shield is so beautiful and meaningful. I'm filled with admiration for your process. You definitely deserve a Museum, an open Museum !
