I know, I know, I have been very quiet again, but then I am stitching on the Dreaming Cloth so quietude, if not silence itself could be deemed appropriate ;). Once I had completed the ground cloth I was to have Willow supported/held in the arms/branches of a tree – a Mother/Earth tree perhaps. I turned away from that idea as I had intended to use appliqué to form the tree. However, months later I decided that she should, indeed, be held in such a way whilst slumbering, keeping her safe from any harm, allowing her to dream freely and chose to create it with kantha(ish)-style stitching.
She looks to be peacefully dreaming to me – I feel to join her.
