River of Moons (go with the flow) is getting there!

River of Moons (go with the flow) is getting there!

the lower edge is Bangalow Palm inflorescence tendrils painted bone white

it still needs refining with some white beads incorporated here and there

and the specks of dust & stray threads removed

it will be finished by August 7th to honour the 13 moons since Julie flew free

once I figure out how to make the closure

view from the back with silk velvet indigo dyed by Jacinta of Spiral Dyed

with gratitude to the indigo queens, Glennis Shibori Girl, Ulrike Bogdan and Jude Hill

    Just gorgeous, Mo. I like seeing it standing and from the back.

  2. Nancy says:

    Oh Mo! This is so filled with love and devotion. The phrase “labor of love” is what comes to mind. What a gorgeous honoring of your friend. xo

  3. Margaret Johnson says:

    Your stitching is pure magic Mo, you are a Star…..ox

    MC – what a beautiful goal and an amazing piece of work to honour Julie. Every fragment of the work has memories and love impeded in it. Go well. B

    A river, a flow but to me, a dance of hand, heart and memory and in the 2nd photo, the two stars, the straight ladder, the striated moon- how once in a lifetime comes a friendship that holds so much, each other as well as together, stitched by years and love- Julie and Mo, simply, forever…

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Marti))) Julie was such a treasure in our lives, she had her feet well and truly on the ground with a heart as big as Phar Lap, she helped me make sense of the world with her outspoken honesty and the best sense of fun!

    Oh ((Mo)) your river of moons is so SPECIAL !!!!!
    (ahhh that cute little ladder . . . !)

    • Mo Crow says:

      (((Els))) I had tried to put the little ladder in before the stars were stitched down and it didn’t work, this one has its own ideas about timing in process!

    wow…it’s wonderous!

  10. debgorr says:

    So beautiful…Love seeing it standing, the way it curls.

  11. grace says:

    the passing of time we both See and FEEL it here…with an intense beauty

  12. fiona says:

    What a precious, precious teller of time and tales this is – the velvet!!!

  13. Hazel says:

    Oh, Mo! What an honoring… a deep love filled starlit blue journey…love.

  14. Heather says:

    Really beautiful!

  15. Liz A says:

    I think of the word “haptic” … how I learned it from you and how apt it is for this River of Moons … and the ladder is beyond perfect

    my heart hurts with the realization that each stitch was a tribute to Julie and to your friendship … to love someone is to risk loss and deep sadness, but the memories you made together are the balm
