Seven for a Secret  Mo 19
5H graphite on watercolour paper
I want to draw all the magic & wildness in this beautiful old lady of a house and our favourite haunts here in inner city Sydney over the next two years for the Sayonara Sydney show in March 2021 when we hope to move to the Blue Mountains!
an old sketch for Dark Moon Dancer with the seven feathers
it’s the Full Moon on Good Friday and I am missing our beautiful cat Ariel who passed away 2 years ago
so I’ve been stitching away the blues
Ulrike Bogdan sent this beautiful resist dyed indigo scarf awhile back along with some indigo dyed linen, so I made a fringe to give it a bit more length, it worked beautifully as a stole but I was worried about losing it!
these beautiful words have me itching to make the next moon
“The moon, second-hand, worn at the edges, was hung up in the sky like something a housewife leaves out to remind her it needs mending.”

Glennis Dolce’s blue moon cloth, a beautiful piece of indigo dyed silk from Louise Watson, another Glennis moon on Liz Ackert’s pennon a crow feather for flying in the dark & a stitched feather on black velvet from awhile back

    So much beauties……………and Ariel……………

    Sweet kitty (and familiar) I look forward to all those drawings. Seems like a good way to both honor the past and launch the next phase. Here, a full moon over a Good Friday processional in Assisi promises to be memorable.

  3. I can barely believe it’s been two years since Ariel passed. The soothing qualities of indigo.💙

    We miss them for a long time. Your moon and feathers and scarf are so beautiful.

  5. Nancy says:

    I love seeing the drawings other create!

  6. Marti says:

    The photo of Ariel is majestic; I can see a photo of Ariel and the frame of the photo is entwined with a bit of rosemary, blooming with magical tiny blue flowers, rosemary the herb of remembrance.

    Hi MC – stitching is so about the links; and so meditative in the repetition. Go well. B
