I am stitching a river of blue moons by Glennis Dolce combined with a long piece of indigo dyed linen cloth from Ulrike Bogdan, this project will take 13 moons to make both physically and time wise
considering the nature of fluidity…

  1. The moon the moon. the constant moon in its way. Always somewhere. Perfect project for all moon maidens.

    So so lovely Mo. Will you do a moon a month (so to speak)? Will they all be full? I am so excited by this!!!

  4. Martine Bos says:

    As I read this, the full moon is high in the sky. I am very curious about your moon trip Mo …………

      (((Martine))) each of Glennis’s moons is such a beauty in itself & I love following the undulations in Ulrike’s river cloth, it will be interesting to see how they work together over time

  5. Glorious Mo! I love beautiful, slow cumulative work – how wonderful to track the moons as you move to the mountains
    Love to you

      (((Susi))) there are so many songs rolling through the jukebox in my mind as I am stitching, “Take me to the River” by Talking Heads, then “Moon River” by Louis Armstrong, “Blue Moon” by The Marcels, “Moon Shadow” by Cat Stevens, “Moondance” by Van Morrision, “Ripple” by the Grateful Dead, “Dark Side of the Moon” by Pink Floyd, the list goes on!

    how incredible to stitch your way into retirement. And of course, the materials and concepts are beyond

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Dee))) we will finish up the indoor and outdoor gardening businesses on December 24th, then when the real estate agents reopen in early January will start looking for our new home in the Blue Mountains!

    Oh, Mo, I can hardly wait to see all thirteen…

  9. Marti says:

    Mo, there is a saying in Spanish,”vive por el sol, ama por la luna” which translates to live for the sun, love for the moon.” You and Rod lived for the sun via your gardening business but now, soon, you will find your love in a different place, your new heart’s home to be, guided by the pull of the moon, the flow of the river. This cloth, a trail marker and it is simply so fitting that you create your moon/river cloth as you and Rod begin the journey to your love, the Blue Mountains.

      (((Marti))) just 3 & 1/2 months to get all our gardens looking fabulous for xmas and then we will start looking to rent a Victorian cottage with a shed, a garage and a run down garden with potential to improve, a few blocks back from the edge of the bush so we won’t have to worry about evacuating for the bushfires every time they come through and within walking distance of the pub & then move, we are both so ready to go!

    Mo, May you and your moons and your man travel well. I can’t wait to travel along with you as you share the journey. I can already see how it will represent you so well, with your little twisty, tight stitching 🙂 Swoon.

    beautiful Mo!
