I love this, Grace. I am drawn to the Celtic lore of the raven and crow as messengers to the spiritual world. I have no ravens here as you know, but I look to the crow for signs, just as I do the dragonflies.
Working all weekend - more soon.

Nice to see this up close - I think your stitch looks great and I like how you've added other colours then black thread - like the sheen of the feathers.

Your raven alights on your cloth and the tiny stitches, holding yet freeing: The subtle other colors of her feathers traveling down her body, the clear shape to her, the openness, she lets you see whatever you need to see, whatever you need to know, whatever you need to do, it is there for the looking, the asking, the doing.

it is a good thing when things take time. considering each new space to be filled. or not.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

thank you for your word weaving
fits with the image perfectly

jude ~ yes. can just let this
rest for now. am looking much forward to learning this as i go,
and how best to use stitch and
space, addition of cloth as you
mentioned in C~C...
this has turned out to be an
important cloth, and partly because
the uneasiness of the original pushed me to make it "right"...

Yvonne thanks you...i wasn't sure at all about those wing
reflections, but that's how they
DO appear in the stark desert light

You probably guessed I love ravens... um... the name of my land and blog! I like the stitching.. ravens have that rough textured look around the neck, I think you've captured a bit of the energy and movement. Nice.
