    I’m really enjoying this, Mo.

  2. vdbolyard says:

    beautiful marks you’ve made here…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Velma)) this series exploring the haptic sensibility is taking me down so many new paths, love the way the stitches are redefining lace like a relief carving into the surface of the felt

  3. you search deeper and that

  4. Susan says:

    the stitches are wonderful. you are so talented! blessings!

  5. Hazel says:

    This is coming to life more and more.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Hazel))) it’s moving right along now, another 2 & 1/2 panels to go, then line each panel in white silk, edged with needle lace, haven’t decided how to strengthen the “ribs”… perhaps grey silk cord, guitar strings or bound boar bristles won’t know til it’s all stitched together which will work but it’s turning into a real thing! Sea Urchin 4 will be even bigger, Madeleine of Artsite Gallery has offered to felt her old pink wool blanket in her good washing machine. I want to try making lots of holes with reverse applique moon coloured toad skin leather and purple thread… a psychedelic dream thing

  6. deemallon says:

    thank you for a new word — haptic. the pictures of your beautiful stitches on the fuzzy wool really do make me want to touch them. Can’t wait to see this curve into the next aspect of its creation!

  7. Carol says:

    Well on the way now, Mo, and looking so full of Mo magic. Those delicate stitches on the grey felt are quite other worldly. I’m looking forward to following your finishing touches.

    • Mo Crow says:

      me too, am dreaming up Sea urchin 4, I want to cut very precise round holes into the felt, perhaps backing it with one of those iron on stabilizers might do the trick…

  8. The sketches are as intriguing as the stitching Mo.

  9. ‘dilation’ … that’s the word that comes to mind – in the drawing, scale, understanding.
