magic spirits and forgetfulness

i am teaching a class at our local st. lawrence county arts council. i knew that. except it's tomorrow, sorta crept up on me. it's called magic spirit bag, and it's about weaving a long cloth, folding it and seaming up the sides. to embue it with magic it will need items that inspire the user, bits of rag, bones, wild fiber, beads, wire, feathers, fur, whatever can be included that has meaning to the user. i envision it as small, big enough to hold something, if only dreams. a useful tapestry. 

my bag is packed, and i'm ready to go. a saddle bag, first time i've used it to to haul stuff.
