    A truly wondrous gift, Mo. Magnificent collection of treasures. ((((Mo))))

  2. Eliene says:

    Miss P loves that you are sharing her love…..this is beautiful Mo.

  3. Patricia says:

    strong medicine here

  4. Liz says:

    I don’t know what impresses me more … the incredible dimensionality of your work or the amazing store of materials (the “pantry”) that you have at your command. Either way, I love looking at the end results!

    • Mo Crow says:

      thanks for the good words Liz, the collection of treasures from nature goes back 40 years although I lost a lot of feathers and fur to the mortuary beetles in 2009 and then again last year, there is still enough left for the rest of this lifetime!

    What a special gift Mo !
    She will be v-e-r-y happy when receiving this 😉

    The colors of the bird feathers are so festive. This is a little stroke of light.

    • Mo Crow says:

      we are all rain( )ow warriors… oh yikes my key( )oard is playing up!
      PS a bit later and ok, what I was trying to say earlier is we are all rainbow warriors and how good is it that there’s a free virtual keyboard available online!

    you raise making knots to a high art! hope you get your keys back soon! (or replaced)

    • Mo Crow says:

      I love tying magical intent into every knot, hmmm…. hoping the keyboard just needs to dry out from my enthusiastic cleaning of all the gunge on the space bar early this morning…

      • deemallon says:

        I splurged on a special brush for my keyboard from one of these horribly hokey catalogues my sister gets. One end is a brush. The other a sculpted piece of pointy hard foam. I have to say, I love it.

        • Mo Crow says:

          that sounds like a good thing! hoping it will dry out soon… spilled a coffee into the last one in January… it died, fingers this one will recover soon

    This is sure to bring much joy and magic into her life! Is the felt heart rose petal filled like your bookmarks?

  9. Marti says:

    Rainbow amulet, amulet of hope with a flow of love to it; beautifully made Mo.

    I’m late in commenting on your 9 of hearts weave but I wanted to tell you Mo that it is a powerful work. The vibrancy of those 9 hearts so importantly tells of the strength and grace of these families who endured such a terrible loss.

  10. Ooh – this resonates! Magical intent into every knot – yes! 🙂

  11. Oh – and rolled rose petals – that took my breath away!
