Linda Summers indigo heart talisman
woven with lovefeathered with hope
a tattered, woven indigo heart full of love
Linda’s beautiful heart has joined the gathering of oddments (talismans that are too big to fit on the blue branch) for the cloud of tulle making a bridge with the lines of pennants for the dream
you can see more of Linda’s work with weave and indigo over on The Stitching Weaver

    Ah indigo…that singular blue, the color of sky and water that paradoxically must be composted out of the plants that carry it…so earthy and right for a heart that holds all of the elements.

  2. Nancy says:

    Oh I love this little blue heart! I love that it IS blue 🙂

    • Mo Crow says:

      ‘The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue. The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.
      For many years, I have been moved by the blue at the far edge of what can be seen, that color of horizons, of remote mountain ranges, of anything far away. The color of that distance is the color of an emotion, the color of solitude and of desire, the color of there seen from here, the color of where you are not. And the color of where you can never go. For the blue is not in the place those miles away at the horizon, but in the atmospheric distance between you and the mountains.””
      by Rebecca Solnit in ‘A Field Guide to Getting Lost’ (p29)

    What a lovely thing this heart with feathers. Your quote from Rebecca Solnit also strikes a chord with me. Thank you as ever.

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Louise))) I love all of Rebecca Solnit’s writing, this one is my favourite followed closely by ‘The Faraway Nearby’ and ‘Hope in the Dark’
