Dilly-Bag-in-progress-Feb14It’s the Leo Full Moon with a light rain on the tin roof
a good day for getting lost in the details  of The Blue Moon Talinistic Dilly Bag 
dilly-bag-in-process-3-Feb-14lots of tiny stitches are giving body to the indigo & rust dyed silk from Arlee
dilly-bag-detail-Feb-14the curly sticks of immature Bangalow palm inflorescence & stitched seams of indigo dyed silk thread from Glennis are starting to define the edges
detail-2-Feb-14myrrh & clay beads from Africa add earthiness to the Fire Moon from Patricia Spangler
(NB the Airy Moon in the first photos is on indigo dyed linen from Patricia with an overlay of organza by Glennis)
Dilly-Bag-in-process-2-Feb-14Feeling pleasantly lost in the process with this one
looking forward to it resolving slowly this year
with the inspiration of  Jude Hill’s What if Diaries 2 Just Considering Weave  which starts in a few months
& Karen Ruane’s Simply Stitch 4  which starts in a few weeks
I love this online community of cloth conjurors!
PS the crow drawing you can see in the background of some of these photos is the beginnings of the next song for “The illustrated Lyrics of Old Man Crow”

    It’s colours that draw me in! Always loved these blues.Add rusty tones and I’m “in.”

    there is so much delicious color and stitch in this piece…I can sit and look forever on the screen and still see something new..I am just imagining how wonderful this is to actually hold. So looking forward to the next What if Diaries with Jude…so much comes alive in me when I am part of this community. And, daily I find pleasure in following Karen R with her most magnificent stitching in mostly white. I’m in, please. Kristin

    Wow, this really speaks to me, Mo… like a moon-nest bag. Beautiful, just the right balance of ethereal and earthy for me. Rain on tin roof there, almost 3 feet of snow on tin roof here!

    Ohhh Mo, you are, as always , making something pretty special here. Soooo delicate and fragile. I just adore all the details you weave into your work (sketch and cloth). Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Marg ox

      Thanks for the good words Marg, have no idea where this one is taking me but I’m enjoying the ride! and that ecru coloured thread that you sent along for practicing needle lace is lovely to work with!

    we have so much in common…we both get lost in the flow of a piece and we both bend needles!! Who knew? I adore this piece, it’s almost a ”life form” it has so many organic, flowing qualities.

  10. i am glad it’s going slow…i have the tinyest somethings that might find a place….i will put
    into mail this week.
    this is beyond Anything.

    Wonderful magic being made here, Mo! Every little thing you do seems to enhance and make it more mysterious. I hope to see it one day…
