brilliant colour combination and the way you get such a sense of wild freedom in your line astounds me
this piece - i have been working on it for two years.first it was a circle, then I cut it up and it was a cross, then it was a circle again, but a mended circle.what astounds me in this particular piece is that it continues to look fresh, even though it has so much work in it. why I like stitch work more than painitng. Painting is too vulnerable - it becomes stiff and over worked and tired so easily. It seems to lose it's vitality.Stitching has got so much soul in it, it responds with love and forgiveness to human touching. It keeps the marks safe, each one a blessing.
do you have photos of when it was first circle and then when it was a cross? love seeing how your work is transformed with time stitch by stitch combined with undoing and reconfiguring, you are brilliant
yes, if you follow the label'ito moon' you will see how it went through the cross cutting up stage. Just click on that label dear Mo. xo
thank you I needed to see this progression, this & your words-"Stitching has got so much soul in it, it responds with love and forgiveness to human touching. It keeps the marks safe, each one a blessing."slow stitching is bringing me back to the making out of the grief for our beautiful broken world amplified a few weeks ago by the death of our muse Ariel P Cat

Like looking through a screen at a giant Harvest Moon, i keep coming back to look at this Manitoulin Moorish Moon.
I love that way of looking at it. As if it is a Manitoulin Moorish Moon. Thank you for those words.I've started to think of it as more like a sun in a dark sky. A sun full of love and soul. xo
I hope that we can have a conversation about creation. Thank you for taking interest. x
