Another Poem Pillow...

I wanted to needle-felt another pillow with a totally different look.  I used 3 small felts, pieced together in an irregular shape.  (I wanted to use up stuff from my stash.) Although you can't see them, I sewed on a lot of beads and pearls for some sparkly details. The intent was to make the overlapping pieces look like overlapping waves on the shore. 

Another favorite poem is "maggy and milly and molly and may" by e.e. cummings.  I've taken the last line for the pillow.

maggy and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach(to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and        

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
its always ourselves we find in the sea
