Liz Ackert’s pennon for the dream traveled all the way from Texas !
with a crow card!
and the mended shell she made in Jude Hill’s Considering Weave class when we first met, the weaving is so fine
I hung the pennon on the line in the afternoon sun to relax from the journey
Old Man Crow is blown away seeing all the words of his song I dream of a world where love is the answer stitched so beautifully into the pennon
here’s the pennon, shell and card happily settling into the studio space, the dream is real, I can hold it in my hands and read it!
hanging out on the front door
this side of the cloth holds words from Old Man Crow, Terry Tempest Williams, Wendell Berry, John Lennon, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Dee Mallon, Marti in New Mexico, and me!
delicate asemic writing across the top of the pennon
the other side of the pennon holds all of the words to Old Man Crow ‘s song
the beauty of Liz’s stitching combined with Deb Lacativa’s ‘dirty threads’
you can read more about Liz making this dream come true over on her blog
stirring the pot, magic is afoot!

    how stunning, it must be wonderful to witness the dream unfolding, glad to be taking part
    making iron water for painting and the pennon has been mordanted, it’s resting now

    Words stitched in varied threads, threading their way around the globe. Words stitched from a caring and giving place where Liz honors words from others, especially the moving lyrics written by Rod, a tribute to artistry in all forms…words, stitch, cloth, color, movement, all flowing from the deep well that is Liz’s creativity, Spirit rising, as the dream of a world filled with peace and love comes alive in this incredibly, beautifully cloth poem, from a woman who lives in Texas, heart extended.

    It is what I would expect from Liz — tender and strong, flowing and yet well-integrated — and all executed with a high level of craft. The thing that strikes me is how alive it looks — like a head of hair. I expect the thing to turn and say something. How do you do that? Make cloth seem alive?

    What a gift, from card to writing to wrapping to beautiful pennon! Your project is releasing such wonderful energy and will be imbued with the personality and spirits of such amazing people. Liz has covered her pennon with words both mysterious and explicit, delicately embroidered on cloth colored by the earth. There are so many actual and metaphorical layers here, just like life and love.
