Donation of 12 pillows!

Wow!!! We received a donation of 12 pillows!!!

I washed all pillowcases, I can sew around 100 dolls with them, and I put the dreams to breath under the sun.

There are different kinds of dreams, some of them look like popcorn, they suddenly come up like an insight.

This lovely lady Angela is the generous soul who gave us these pillows and lovely Jessica put them away at Jacksons Lane.

We now have enough dreams for the next months, thank you!

Soft Dreams

Jennifer gave me five pillows with loads of dreams. I put all the dreams in the sun and made 24 dolls with the pillow cases. I cut three pillow cases and two of them I’ll use as storage.

We are flying this Saturday to make dolls in Lisbon.

The dreams are very soft, a pleasure to work with, thank you very much Jen!

Two kind of dreams

The long continuous stories and the small quick images that pop up apparently not related with each other, I love them both!

The dreams wonder about the world

I opened each pillow Sia gave me and turned them inside out, took the core/centre/ deep dreams, put them in the sun for many hours and washed the pillow cases which will become the fabric I will sew some dolls. That’s what I always do.

The surface dreams- the first layer of the stuffing usually rough and stained- I throw them away, for hygienic purposes and also because we can consider them superficial dreams, we like the deepest ones.

They are in the window looking outside, they wonder about the world, they are ready to step out there.

New dreams

I met Sia at the Lbtq D&D event last month. She promised me she would give me some pillows. We met yesterday evening and she gave me 6 pillows – hers, her sister’s, her best friend’s and her house mate’s- and 8 pillow cases.

She wrote:

‘Thank you for seeing beauty where other people see trash. Thank you for seeing potential where other people see nothing. Thank you for taking my hopes, nightmares, feverdreams, flights of imagination, naps and nights awake and giving them a new life, spinning our dreams into the kind of art that will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone who comes into contact with it. And thank you most of all for letting me be included! It makes me so happy’.

She came all the way down to meet me in Euston, thank You Sia!

Sleep quality and the moon

The 700 dolls project is magically related with the full moon in terms of numbers as much as in terms of sleep dreams.

I am amazed that recently scientists have done experiments to find out the relationship between the full moon and our sleep quality. A July 2013 study carried out at the University of Basel in Switzerland presented evidence that a lunar rhythm can modulate our sleep structure. They say: ‘The lunar cycle seems to influence human sleep, even when one does not ‘see’ the moon and is not aware of the actual moon phase.’

The moon and the dreams and the tides and the water and the emotions… all connected!

Isn’t that great!
