Raven #1

 Raven #1 is my 12"X 12" for this months Textile Artists of the Great Yellowstone monthly challenge.  The theme this month was "something you may not know about me".  And so the Raven.  I love this bird, they are fun to watch, they live to be well over 20 years, they have a great sense of humor.  Not a single day goes by that I do not see a Raven in the area.  They soar,  they love the wind,  they make everyday play time.    Years ago,  I met a Native American medicine man, he told me that my spirit guide is the Raven.  I am not sure how he would know that, but since that time I value these birds.  I have watched them closely,they make me believe that each one that I see will bring me good thoughts, good days.  A happy life.  They certainly make me smile.  This is the 1st in a series I hope to make using the Raven as the constant in quilts.
