Patricia Spangler’s pennant is a wild thing that makes my heart sing!
bursting with star shine and moon song
touching deep time
wild power
held with love and mending
the gentle blue on the other side settling in
with the gathering
moon spirit cardnamaste
you can see more of Patricia’s beautiful work over on her blog and website

    My heart skipped a beat!

    The deepness of the colors, the many tumbling stitches, the starry stitches, the center, peeling back layers to bring forth an ancient figure, light- hearted perhaps but to me, holding wisdom, the purple stitching signifying a scroll with an incantation… the whole of Patricia’s wondrous, strong pennant is what The Gathering needs in order to mend our world, to Dream of a World Where Love is the Answer, we have to hold onto ourselves, with all that we are, with our humanity, our wisdom, our humor, our love, our strength, our commonality. This pennant is remarkable in its tactile strength; it speaks of an ancient story of our world, as it formed, as it is now, in turmoil, but with integrity in the many stitches that speak of pathways, of hard fought gains, of continuing..

    Ooh baby, baby it’s a wild world! The glory of her pennant is the ‘mess’ of it all…meant in the most positive way, after all – life is messy. Anyway, her pennant burst with life, filled with living. Exuberant! Love seeing them all come together!

    I’m struck with the entirety of this display…how each piece supports the whole, so essential to the health and function of the project’s intent and message. It’s a microcosm of humanity, isn’t it? Different colors, different styles, different approaches…yet ONE message. Thank you, Mo, for asking me to participate in this project. Nancy’s comment made me laugh! It is a mess for certain. A mess with a message! And as Marti hints…humor may help save the day. It’s a pleasure and honor to be hanging with such thoughtful women. Namaste.

      (((Patricia))) holding your pennant, all the colours and textures are so beautiful, would love to hear more about your process, what plants you used and the who is the powerful being in the centre?

    Patricia has turned the world upside down with this amazing pastiche … and as ever, her eco-dyeing is a wonder. I could look at this pennant forever and a day!

    How wonderful to see such beautiful work from Patricia’s hands once again. I’d love to hear her thoughts about the central figure. I can’t help thinking Mo, that all the loving karma you’ve spread around the world is returning to you.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Beth))) as each amazing pennant & talisman settles in the air is so charged with love, I get goosebumps & my hair stands on end, always a sign that magic is afoot! This work needs to be seen, dreaming of putting it in the foyer of the senate at Parliament House in Canberra, to help open the hearts of the decision makers of our land.

    Interesting!! Patricia has scrambled a couple of conventions here (not that there are any real rules or conventions…this is such an individualistic project) by inverting the pennant shape and by cutting up the satin into pieces and reassembling it into a glorious collage. The central image of a humanistic sun emanates fragments of energy into the starry, multi-textural firmament…perhaps an illustration of (as you say) “our beautiful broken world”. Love the colors too, and the leaf printed backing. I would like to know more about how they were achieved.

    Another treasure – so much detailed stitching , the colours sit quietly and share their story, and the cut fringe is so beautiful!

  9. deemallon says:

    I share Patricia’s ‘not quite achieving hope’ — and I think the pennant reflects that. As such it is a wild array, showing up how we’ve been shattered, gifting the project with intensity and a counterpoint.
