the concept is growing, found a good branch from a crepe myrtle for the talismans, will draw to scale soon
look forward to seeing what everyone else is up to as it goes
there’s plenty of time, the pennants and talismans don’t need to get back here ’til December 2018 but it was fun to take a little time out to dream

  1. Isn’t it wonderful to use gifted materials? All those gifts from loving friends coming together for this one project . . . yes.

    Mo, this pennant is soft yet strong, dreamy yet real, quiet yet at the same time powerful in its colors of soft earth and indigo; at least that is how the colors look on my computer screen. The stitched words, a much needed mantra for our world. One question: do you need us to sew ties to our pennants as I’m not at all good about doing so…?

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Marti))) it was fun to do, the colour is a bit more pink on my screen than in real life but close, may add a few more beads and things as it goes & no worries about making the ties for your pennant I can do that, this one needed the loops to work visually

  3. I’m glad you reminded me of the date due…and this is a gorgeous collaborative collage of a talisman!
