    Oh, this is gentle & sweet. Love all the swirling loops.

    • Mo Crow says:

      each modified leaf forms a perfect half circle and the stems are so springy yet sturdy, the nest feels bouncey! I scored the zig-zag from the flower markets back in May last year and it has dried beautifully. I stitched some stems to cloth and paper last year, there’s lots to explore!

    enlarged the pic so as to really see and admire all your looping artistry. I’m not sure I see the beads tho unless that strike of blue on ‘the handle’ is one? It’s really, really beautiful. I need another word!!
