reaching for the stars (halfway there)  Mo18
detail of starry lace stitched with linen thread from the stars cut out of the ivory kid leather
the other side
with the pristine right hand glove waiting for its stars
then I need to make a simple wire armature so they can be seen front and back or alternatively suspend them from the fingertips with very fine thread…

    Stunning!!! Is there room for 1 blue moon amongst the stars on the other….just another reason to use some more of that magical blue.

    Mo, the glove is stunning! I love how the stars are clustered at the end and the threads are still there!
    I have yet to do my mothers gloves, I was going to stuff them and use a dowel rod in a base, yours would be wonderful suspended, like kites, just an idea

      (((Hazel))) I’m in love too but they are from the 1940’s when people were petite (my big gardener’s hands only fit halfway up the sleeves) am hoping my elegant 85 year old friend will agree to model them when they are finished in March!

    Wondrous magic to have stars at your fingertips and you do for these gloves have come to life in the nebula of your creativity and imagination Mo. Scattered stars, at fingertips, the length of the arm, dangling at the cuffs, a trail of stardust, of illumination that goes beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary and lights up our hearts upon viewing…AND that is amazing to me for I am only viewing them through the lens of this computer screen. I love the phrase, ” magic afoot” but here, magic is so at hand. Mo, you so often speak of good magic, well my dear, here it is in all of its glory. What it must be like to see these star shining gloves in person…
