Judy Martin’s pennant is here
bound with red thread and her beautiful words
My heart
The world’s heart-
keeps beating
with deep love
the other side
settling in
with the gathering
Judy’s wonderful sense of line superbly stitched with such deep heart holds the beat
you can see more of this brilliant artist’s work in Judy’s Journal
her Manitoulin Circle Project is a major inspiration for the dream

I ran out of cane toad skins so I have been making stars from a piece of vellum parchment dated 1812
I cut each star out by hand with a no.11 scalpel blade
a sharp needle, fine vintage cotton and thick linen thread
the first stitch
I use tweezers to bend each point
the antique vellum is so fine and strong it doesn’t tear at all!
nearly done
ready to go
stitched and knotted into the centre of the bound cotton rope
Cass from String Harvest sent sample lengths of Australian cotton rope in 3mm, 4mm, 5mm & 7mm
the 5mm cotton rope will work perfectly for hanging all the pennantsJudy Martin’s poem book is such an inspiration
beautifully photographed with such deep and thoughtful words
Magic Days!

Mended-World-by-Judy-MartinJudy Martin’s “Mended World”, an exhibition of her Manitoulin Circle ProjectNot to Know but to Go On & Cloud of Time is showing ’til March at the Art Gallery of Sudbury in Ontario, Canada.
Here’s a link to her inspiring talk at the opening about this beautiful work and the four years of working with her community to complete it.
The catalogue is available through the Thunder Bay Art Gallery
I look forward to Judy producing a large format photo book of this project but until then you can see her process and materials documented here
I dream of one day seeing this work in real life!
Judy is a beautiful artist who shares her work with the world with great heart and deep thoughtfulness, you can see more of her work here & here & here
