    you are so artistically clever my friend……this looks amazing.

    So delicate and beautiful!Our frosts are like this now. I have always thought sea urchins perfect for stitching textures- the tops that fall out have perfect holes to stitch through if you can find one still with its star top.

    • Mo Crow says:

      will keep an eye out for the tiny star tops, was given a beautiful piece of very old lace at xmas which has some perfect drawn thread lace stars for sea urchin 4

  4. Amazing wip! You go girl!

    I love the “documentation” photos, progress as much as the Object.

  8. drawing is what lets us KNOW things…as in become intimate with their beingness

  9. Susan says:

    Mo…so delicate and strong, all in one.

    • Mo Crow says:

      I love the springiness of the boar bristles and the “Whisper” silk organza from Beautiful Silks is surprisingly tough, still considering how to lay the beads in and whether to make another half for the bottom or just start weaving…

  10. Love seeing the way it grows . . . sea urchins (kina here) are so beautiful.

  12. fiona says:

    oh my glory Mo – stunning! What a wonderful exploration and rendering ; and the shaping and creating – amazing. What a fortunate life we live – thank you.

  13. ravenandsparrow says:

    Oh Mo, this is just….what? In the space where words cannot follow. The drawings and the lace equally.

  14. fiberels says:

    This urchin is special Mo ! Delicate (like all your work !)
    Have a healthy happy and creative 2017 Mo !!!

  15. Delicate beauty – a rest time is good for the magic to develop itself…

    • Mo Crow says:

      I just stitched on 4 of the white glass beads with French knots & a chain stitch bezel setting to nestle them into the lace, this one will go very slow with a lot of attention to all the details like a drawing in 3D

  16. deemallon says:

    i misread ‘fragile wobbliness’ above as ‘fierce wobbliness’. What you’re making is SO delicate and yet the firmness of delineation as well as the tenacity of the rendered creation’s form speak to strength, not fragility.

    This is so beautiful and so inspiring to me… I love how broad your creativity is, it reassures me. 🙂

    • Mo Crow says:

      Deb it’s really starting to take shape, stitched glass beads, French knots and thread beads into the top half &am halfway in with stitching the lace between the boar bristle ribs for the bottom half of the urchin, it’s feeling quite springy and strong with an interesting space in-between developing, am enjoying this year of just looking for beauty with no particular place to go

    swooning…..
