    MC – such a strong, intricate and beautiful piece with so many layers and so much history – seems it was completed in-on time. Peace. B

    Oh Mo…it is magic! I zoom in and look & look at the details, the radiance of this moon is amazing. Big love to you and OMC. xoxo

    This is truly beautiful Mo. Love what you have added to Glennis’s dyed moon piece. All the stitching is mind blowing; you have brought the fabric to life. Your parchment stars are always a favourite [as you know] and the bone ladder is amazingly leading to the moon, the stars and beyond and enveloped by that stunning blue leather. Those beautiful fingers and your love filled heart create magic my friend.

    So beautiful this work…of love. Such a joy to fall into every detail…. Season’s greeting to you Mo as the energy of stillness and change flows from Solstice all the way through into the New Year.

    countless stitches and stars … a ladder that reaches beyond to the moon and beyond … and the tiniest red x … truly a magnum opus

    sending love through the ether to you and OMC as the moon wanes … and becomes new again on January 1st

    Oh Mo – this is beyond beautiful. It is heart-full of love and connection; every fine detail stitched with such care. Stories of the heavens; to the moon and back; reaching out…it says so much.

    Ethereal yet grounded, bold yet magical, lovely yet strong in its healing power…a place to dig fingers and toes in the sand while gazing up and then climbing the ladder to dreams…this is astonishingly beautiful Mo.
