Maybe a month ago I was thrilled to finally succeed at scoring some of Glennis' magical moons. With my order she included the above heart. Immediately knew I wanted to pair it with a jude moon reverse appliqued inside the heart. Further knew I wanted them to be included on the above presumed inclusion in my elaborate fabric art journal.
But then - with everything that's been happening since, I thought I'd like to make a larger piece to serve as ongoing healing meditation and prayer centered on our shared global crises. There are many inter-layered together. And I think all of that deserves its own clothwork and meditational space from me. Think I also need the stability that will come from working in this way. And just want to say that the batik at the top is a very deep dark indigo rather than black. What looks grey is actually blue.
The precious indigo cut-out wants to stay. Perhaps a healing emissary sent from the moon.
Stitched the moon into place yesterday and ironed earlier today. This is my new thing. I still do iron stuff but maybe 70% of the time now I don't do that until I've done at least a bit of stitching. While I was at it I pressed the orange and turquoise attachment weaving sampler. Think I'm going to mount it on a fabric I haven't searched-out yet. Eventually put it in a slightly recessed glass frame so it can hang on the wall up here in the studio. But maybe that kind of idea is already a dream from another time. It's hard to say.
