Getting to the heart of the matter

The pennon for Mo's dream looked promising laid out on the floor ...


but once stitched and hung, a gap appeared below the moon ...


So, two more cloth shreds needed, but what words to use?

Recalling that I first met Mo during Jude Hill's online Considering Weave, I decided to use "a torn and tattered heart" from a piece worked during that class


and wanting to use some of the indigo cloth Dee Mallon sent
I asked her permission to quote "whole worlds live in some of these scraps" from this post


I think Dee's words will prove to be prophetic.

(((Liz))) this gathering is potent with such deep heart it gives me goosebumps and my hair is standing on end!

How this looks strong and fragile, delicate and raw, at the same time is really something, Liz.

Mo and Hazel - I am pushing the envelope to see how the edges will hold ... and have fallen in love with stitching on satin

yep ... I usually crop them out, but somehow they just seemed to help tell the story

Ah, Liz, this piece is coming along splendidly. I can feel those stitches on my fingers - so beautifully articulated.

Sue - thank you ... I'm ready to let it go

sorry to be so late with comment here... it's wonderful to see the progress (even having already seen the finished piece). I love your stitched words -- so much care goes into both the selection of them and the stitching.

Dee - thank you for your words ... in all ways
