Crow Moon

Well, I really didn’t  anticipate that this would take me a month to do but it has.  However crow number two is now flying into the blue moon.   I stitched the crow off-cloth thinking it would be easier and, whilst the actual stitching of the crow was more manageable, the attaching took so long I think working on-cloth in future is the way I shall go.  All good learning!

I think I have just about finished the pictorial aspects of this cloth, what remains to do are more stems and a lot more stitching/quilting of the cloth itself.    I am hoping I make my self-imposed deadline of the end of the year – I do appear to be on course.

Once we have a dry and non-windy day I shall take a picture of the full cloth as it is now.


About Jill An artist inspired by nature in all her glorious guises and the ‘inner’ worlds I have inhabited in the past, present and future; also those of other wanderers I meet along the way.
