getting there!
The online catalogue is sorted, just waiting for the professional photographs to be taken in the gallery on the 28th at 10am & inserted on the 1st to go live for the preview on March 2nd. The opening is on the 3rd in 4 weeks, we will take it up to the gallery to install on the 25th

    Oh my glory Mo – so much work!!! Hard to believe that you are this close – it doesn’t seem that long ago that you were inviting folk to come play. The gallery space and lighting look fabulous and will honour the work so well. What an absolute labour of love – brava! We are hoping and with all appendages crossed that we can join you on the 3rd…

  2. Barry says:

    MC – my mind boggles with the thought of the amount of work involved in all of this. May heaps and heaps of love flow into the trouble world from all of this. Go well. B

  3. Roz says:

    Gorgeous Mo !

  4. Eliene says:

    It is all coming together just as it should. those beautiful starry gloves are now in place; Sharon’s lace heart perfectly placed as I know each individual piece of LOVE will also be. This wave of love is going to reach a lot of people….a tsunami of love . Enjoy the process my friend….thank you for the privilege of allowing moi to be a small part of it.

  5. What strikes me again and again is your determination, that ability to hang on and see it through. Astounding vision and craft of course and I’m so grateful to be a part of it dear Mo.

  6. Marti says:

    The depth and breadth of all of this is so amazing Mo. To see the armature in situ, waiting for all of the talismans, pennants, etc….to see the pennants flying in readiness, to know the hard work, vision, heart, determination and invitation extended to all of us to be a part of this magic, well it is a gift, plain and simple. In March and beyond, the world will know and feel this gift of LOVE that has come from all corners of the globe, spearheaded by a woman with vision, a man with words of song and to be a part of all of this is an experience that will never be forgotten for sharing Love in community is to heal the world.

    I misread the notice as “local and intentional” quilters — it fits, too, I think. Agree with all that this is incredibly exciting. Good luck muscling through the last part of the project. Can’t wait to see it in place. Oh and btw is it too early to ask: What’s next?

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Dee))) enjoying slowing down to work on the little details that no one will see, a tuck here, a tiny star there, the advertising is all sorted, the photographer booked, this week will contact the local newspapers and radio stations to find out how to get in their what’s on pages and segments. What’s next for the dream? it would be great if the Powerhouse Museum wants to give it a home but if no one steps up to the plate I will take it apart and send each pennant, talisman & oddment back to its respective maker in deep gratitude & plant a standard wisteria in the rusted steel dress form. The next exhibition will be Sayonara Sydney in 2021, there will be drawings of our beautiful old lady of a house, the streets of Newtown & whatever else happens in the next two years before we move to the Blue Mountains to become Blackheathens, the time will fly!

  8. Martine says:

    ………..Oh Mo………………

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Martine))) am enjoying listening to the murmurings as each pennant settles into place on the rope lines and so happy that the starry gloves holding up the cloud of tulle works!

  9. Tina says:

    I so wish that all of us .. all could gather around holding each other’s hands singing 🎵🎶🎵 We dream of a world where love is the answer 🎵🎶🎵 seeing it in my minds eye fills me with loving gratitude.

  10. there is a power of love behind and coming through those starry gloves.. the hands of the maker guiding and drawing it all together – its wonderful Mo – a dream of love come true

  11. ravenandsparrow says:

    I LOVE the ropy attachments with the cloud of tulle, fastened with covered buttons! It is elegant and contrasty at the same time. The starry gloves work perfectly…more than perfectly….they hold the train of tulle like a ghostly bridesmaid, followed by a procession of pennants. I would love to see this in person, to take in all the details and the whole. How exciting!

  12. Louise Watson says:

    All looking wonderful! Such a lot of work for you- hope you have a holiday planned when it’s over?

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Louise))) this circle has created the most magical wave of love, looking forward to releasing the energy at the opening & seeing what happens next!

  13. Hazel says:

    Like a dream…

  14. Nancy says:

    Amazing how this process unfolds, uplifts and spreads the love!

  15. Nanette says:

    Fabulous! Excited, not long now x

  16. jude says:

    worth the work Mo!

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Jude))) it’s just the fine details now, this morning I snugged all the talismans into place after a little rearranging earlier in the week and all the pennants are singing, the dream is real and so beautiful, that needle in yours is so exquisitely to the point!

  17. Judy Martin says:

    I am honoured to be part of this – you are a heroine for the world, your journey inspiring. Best of luck for all the final details, and getting that last talisman from your dear friend. Sending good thoughts from ice and snow in Canada . xoxox

  18. Peggy McG says:

    Mo, just so you know, it has been so exciting to read your blog and watch all the talented people come together under your vision. For those of us who will not be able to visit this extraordinaire collaboration of work, know How grateful we are to “see” it here and understand the enormous work behind the scenes you have pulled off. Amazing.

  19. fiberels says:

    Oh WOW, exciting !!!!!

  20. sharmondavidson says:

    Mo, I have just spent a good portion of time looking at all the posts relating to this wonderful, huge project. All I can say is that I’m astounded, gobsmacked, and flabbergasted by the myriad forms of creativity, beauty, sacred magic, and love that have come from all of these very special, talented people. Thank you for your vision, your guidance, and all your hard work in bringing it all together! xoxo

  21. Good luck go with you tomorrow Mo for the installation – go well, namaste

  22. …ha – I see it is already 25th with you and nearly dawn!
