    Ahhhh Mo, soooo many beautiful things you have here !!!
    Is that grown in nature, hanging over Old Man Crow’s head ???
    Nature’s an artist, no doubt about that !
    Love your Brave heart crow and that Hopeful Thing
    Just had to think of you when I saw this ! :

    There’s much to see in a hopeful thing … the highlights are very effective, but it is the stitches hugging the sinuous vine (or is it a bit of root?) that most make me smile.

      finished reading the very inspiring “Slow Stitch” on Friday then turned into a whirling dervish painting the palm inflorescence white all in one day, spent Sunday intricately stitching a weblike setting for the dark moon using thread that was too thin for the weight of the glass socut it all away & cleared the bench, stitched the red heart for the crow, the Hopeful thing & smudged with white sage, just letting it all simmer on a slow heat now…

      it was a magic day back in 2004 when the Brave Heart Crow flew down to the fence, called me outside and gave me a good talking to for about twenty minutes, so close I could have reached out and touched his chest…

    Gorgeous Mo!! Have you got any black linen thread for the glass? Did you cover the stone first and use seperate thread to join it to the plant? Let me know if you would like some linen thread. ox

    • Mo Crow says:

      Thanks for the offer Marg! I have lots of black linen thread, had a go on Sunday stitching some webbing with black linen & black leather cord but it was too fine in relation to the size and weight of the glass and interfered with the form of the glass (have left a spiral covering the punty mark on the back of the glass) will try a gravity setting with some of the thicker grape vine tendrils today on a spare palm inflorescence to see if it will work. If they aren’t strong enough to hold the weight of the glass I can get them cast in white metal at Palloys
