Hope and learning about the integrity of a thread

stitching more hope with this vintage Silkworm thread & hope coloured laces and cloths that Margaret Johnson sent along with the crow woman talisman  last month. The thread is teaching me so much about working with a twist on delicate indigo dyed scrim, a velvet moon & the finest organza silk ( it’s like holding a piece of  moonlight) from Glennis Shibori Girl to extend a glorious length of rust and indigo dyed silk from Arlee Barr
this is an ongoing exploration of the first verse of “Hope” by Emily Dickinson

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all”

you can see my variations on this theme so far here, herehere & here

    Stunning, Mo! I miss stitching, haven’t found time to do much this year at all, life gets in the way.

        I’m using every bit of that beautiful Silkworm thread, the ends that are too short for the needle are getting turned into tassles and all the beautiful old lace… am just starting to explore the possibilities of one piece, I think this one will take quite some time in the most gently peaceful & hopeful way…

      ah Christina you do such beautiful stitching! I love the little bag for your beautiful Talisingr & am hoping there will be lots more time for making all your wonderful dream things and beautiful art and writing on your blog!
