    It’s so beautiful Mo, and beautiful in the way I love most…it’s not just lovely to look at, it’s got STORY woven in to every knot and every thread.

    • Mo Crow says:

      thank you Christina!… the last 2 hearts embroidered on either side of the “Help Ever Hurt Never” are for all the forgotten folk…the ones who we can’t remember their names or don’t want to name out loud any more or were too weird or wild or whatever (or we were) & so only in our lives for a very brief time… everyone matters and every word, both spoken & unspoken makes a difference for sure

  7. It’s so beautiful. I wish it could see it in person. I can feel that there is so much more to it than is visible to the eye. I am honored to have a heart in the Stole of Bandaged Hearts and so glad I resisted the desire to have it in my possession. It is where it belongs.

    • Mo Crow says:

      honouring all the hearts in our lives… this stole may well be the most deeply powerful work in my lifetime & Old Man Crow wears it so lightly
