    i knew you would put those “off the beaten path” moons to excellent use! wishes for the New Lunar Year!

  2. deemallon says:

    So beautiful and inspiring. I love how these moon landscapes approximate your drawing style — with the little white stitches resembling ink marks.

  3. Hazel says:

    What a beautiful journey.

  4. fiona says:

    These moons are moving and wafting and waning so beautifully; as if they are choreographed. Your stitching and little bits of magic are a delight to discover! Go well, and enjoy the moon…

  5. So beautiful Mo – keep on rocking and stitching!

  6. Martine says:

    Mo your moons are so beautiful and soothing to me………………..

  7. Liz A says:

    I continue to be amazed by this piece … the variations in thread weights … how your stitches are so fine and your curved lines so sure …in a way you make it look effortless, like a swan gliding over water … those of us who ply needles know better

    this time the moon is soft….a pearl

  9. Marti says:

    Moon steps: if you accordion pleated this cloth and then let it go, a lunar path to magic appears. The moon patches, the stellar blues, the exquisite stitches, mapping a way to what is and what can be..

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Marti))) this mapping of the heart through the 13 moons of the lunar cycle is becoming an accordion book, have been wondering whether to pleat seams into the accordion folds or stitch wires wound with cloth into the back like bones in a corset … these are the sorts of decisions I love playing with!

    Moon-lucious. 🙂 Do you know this one, “The moon’s the North wind’s cooky, he bites it day by day…” Vachel Lindsay

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Deb))) what a delightful way to look at the moon, reminds me of this quote from Maurice Sendak;
      “Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

    Your delicate hand is mesmerizing.

    am getting into the ladders patterned repetition more and more. I mean that in terms of their timeless meanings and relevanace. so used to perceiving the moon as something that grounds enough to set a taproot here. It’s revelatory in others ways too – what if I start flipping more and more root associations into ladders? whoa.

  13. Tina says:

    Simply Amazing .. the ladders are fantastic and make me believe that yes I can climb to the moon. This piece makes me believe anything is possible.
