aah raven medicine!

beautiful work grace! well i'm for sure not an embroiderer either, no where close, but i do love this and the space between stitches. seems to give your magic friend a bit of texture and character. but ravens are shapeshifters, so who knows which shape it will appear next.

and that little patch of fabric top right... with the worn hole, another portal in your work? is it just me or a reoccurring theme? love it either way. i think i had mentioned this before, on your post with piece with the blue center and pen doodling... how i love portals, and doors... symbols i am researching and feeling out.

hope your weekend was fabulous.

other things have happened here
because i have really "asked".
who knows.

Well...I like her just the way she is, in my mind coming out of the mist and fog.

grace Forrest~Maestas said...

well....this is good then. am
getting the sense that just "sitting" with a stitching question is good work in itself.
