hot coco


Jealous of her husband affairs, Aani decided to gorge on dirt until she burst. Aani ate and ate until she was so fat that her husband became disgusted with her, and he cut her into a hundred pieces. From the pieces grew the Sand people. The Sand people were Aani’s fragmented memories and one by one got together to find her deceitful husband to devour him.

When the sand people arrived at Taff’s door he mistook them for dirt and poured water on them to wash them away. The sand people were swept into a nearby river. They cried to the River for help and told him of their sorrows. Soon the River sympathized with the Sand people and decided to wash them up on shore. When sand people washed up on shore, they began to slowly build themselves again, and when they finally were whole they started on their long journey back.

This time when they got to Taff’s door his mistress Zu-zan opened the door, and swept them away. Dishearten by their unfruitful attempts, the Sand people wept dry tears, until a wide eye Owl heard their cries and came to them. The Owl told them to eat three rocks each and they would grow ten times their normal size. So, they did and each grew ten times their normal size.

This time when they went to Taff’s door, he ordered the South Wind to take them away. So the South Wind did, the sand people tumbled in the wind for many days and nights. Until, finally the wind stopped, and their bodies fell from the sky shattering into millions of pieces as they hit the earth, and from their bodies created deep a sea of sand, the had sorrow created a barren in the land where no plant or tree could grow.

I've posted this quilt but never the story i wrote for it.

lord of fire

Human Son
Izlan and Ka dreamed of a child of warmth, and for years the spirits gave them none. Until one day Izlan was picking berries in the forest when a demon told her to build a shrine of birch and bang the rocks over the wooden bed and a child would come. So Izlan rushed home to Ka to tell him of the demon’s advice. Ka built a shrine like the demon had said, he built a bed of birch, and began striking rocks together to call forth the child. When the rocks hit a spark of life jumped from the rocks into the birch bed. From it arose Augato lord of fire, demon of play, and son of Izlan and Ka.
The fire child began small, and Izlan and Ka nurtured their son. He would warm their hut on days when Sezeri nipped at their fingers, but Augato hungered for more and he had grown too big for the birch bed. Growing, Augato consumed their hut and sent his parents fleeing into the forest. Augato continued to grow turning the forest into ash. Not knowing what to do, Izlan and Ka prayed to the spirits to help them. Ina mother of creation saw Augato’s destruction of her forests, and ordered the rains to stop the child. When Augato was finally subdued, Ina banished the child. Izlan and Ka begged Ina to return their only child. Ina sympathized with Izlan and Ka’s request and returned the child under the condition that his power would be controlled.
