    Gorgeous Mo!

  3. Liz A says:

    Incredible close up shot of the sea urchin … and my fingers throb just thinking about you stitching through felted knit.

    • Mo Crow says:

      the felt is quite soft & easy to stitch through but there is a ridiculous amount of stitches in this panel, my stitching hand feels kind of numb! will give it a rest for a few days and see if that fixes it, am reading a very good book, “Hag Seed” by Margaret Atwood & she’s in fine form, pulled out all the stops for this one, sharp edged and very very funny.

  4. fiberels says:

    The real urchin is such a wonder ….
    (but you’re doing well too 😉 ….!)

  5. Wobbling attention . . . Yes!

  6. Hazel says:

    I like the wobbles, both in stitch & actual urchin. Wobbling makes confirms they are part of nature.

    • Mo Crow says:

      I really try not to wobble but it is just how it goes… each panel is taking me further into the essence of the sea urchin whilst keeping in mind they are spiny dangerous beings in the ocean

    This is so beautiful.. it is amazing.



    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Linda))) there is so much to explore in this amazing form, a friend is contributing a vintage blanket which she will put through the washing machine a few times for the next one!

  9. nancy krampf says:

    wow just wow, u r rocking the urchin. rock on…..soooooo inspiring 🙂

  10. The stitching is entrancing Mo! Rest your hand gently – looking at the stitching the brain stitches along, flowing with it

  11. fiona says:

    Oh my hand is aching in sympathy Mo – a break is a good idea; but oh what wondrous textures you are wreaking…in the nicest possible way! (is wreaking the present of wrought? – that was my plan….)

    • Mo Crow says:

      just a little break from stitching, framing Honesty and doing 4 hours of gardening in our two biggest gardens today in this 40 degree heat has fixed the numbness but yikes it’s still so hot at 7:30!

  12. rose says:

    Oh. My. I’m swooning with honor to your skill, tenacity and the beautiful Medicine that you’ve created ~ sooooooooooo gorgeous!

  13. Judy Martin says:

    really lovely Mo. I encourage you to stick with it. xo
