Judy Martin’s pennant is here
bound with red thread and her beautiful words
My heart
The world’s heart-
keeps beating
with deep love
the other side
settling in
with the gathering
Judy’s wonderful sense of line superbly stitched with such deep heart holds the beat
you can see more of this brilliant artist’s work in Judy’s Journal
her Manitoulin Circle Project is a major inspiration for the dream

  1. Nancy says:

    Oh…it IS beating! Vibrating out, sharing love with the world of us! The staggering amount of talent and beauty you’ve collected is so humbling. How could anyone possibly absorb it all at once? xo

  2. Martine says:

    This beautiful heart is pouring out love……….

  3. ravenandsparrow says:

    This pennant reminded me immediately of wood grain on a board…the heart of the tree echoed by each year’s accretion of life. So simple and compelling. I like the slight variations in the color red, and the random breaks in the threads. Like life it is perfectly imperfect.

  4. Nanette says:

    Heartfelt lines!

  5. deemallon says:

    The knots are lovely on the back

  6. Judy Martin says:

    I am so pleased that it has arrived safely, and that it looks so comfortable with the others. Thank you Mo for this opportunity to join hands and hearts xo

    Ha, not couched strips, but thread 😉
    (very “Judy” !)
    A vibrating heart !

  8. Fiona says:

    Oh, how wonderful is this? I love the transformation, the simplicity, the pulsing but gentle energy…

  9. Barry says:

    MC – I just love the way that the love ripples out from that heart. B

  10. Liz A says:

    I can scarcely keep up with your posts … and you, how do you keep up with the doing that they record? My heart quickens, seeing Judy Martin’s pennant, the others … gathering, gathering

      (((Liz))) it is such a treat to touch Judy’s superb stitching in real life, tracing the lines with my fingertips, feeling the nub of each stitch, the way the stitching is so fully integrated with the cloth making it stronger yet lighter at the same time!
      and how do I keep up with it all? one of the good things about applying for those grants last year was getting the production schedule together, just ticking off the list now as the dream goes into countdown mode … in 7 weeks Old Man Crow & I will be taking the dream up to the gallery to install!
