Wild Mother Grows

I have finished stitching the stream I think …. I am never quite sure when something is done :

I have returned to the Wild Mother Herself adding to the central figure:

Closer still:

I so enjoy the stitching, the act of it, the feel of it, the look of it ……

    She is coming along nicely isn’t she.
    I love your stitching it is so neat.
    I used to love hand stitching but can’t hold the needle like I used to and my stitches look like a chilld’s after a couple of minutes.
    I shall just enjoy looking at yours, thank you ;0)

  3. I can see the amazing impact your stitching will have. It looks fabulous now. I am in awe of your patience and imagination and am excited to watch as the piece evolves.

    I love the stream – so fluid! And the Wild Mother is developing – it’s so quick to look and I am sure it takes so long to pick each stitch…

    PS – I always like your headers – deceptively simple & dreamy… any Rumi quotes that would fit? I have one at home, my partner put it on a plaque for me: “Be with those who help your being” – what better to describe your journey with your Soul Food friends?

    The Wild Mother is superb – thank ou for letting us see the creation of a piece stitch by stitch. I love to watch the creative fire at work.

    Wild Mother is beautiful and appears to be very wise. One can tell that she is sacred. I used to watch my grandmother quilt by hand. I would sit under the quilting frame and push the needle back up for her. It is satisfying to see handstitching lives on! I love your colors and enjoy seeing the step by step process. Thank you!!
