this is wonderfully beautiful Grace- I love that I can look at your pictures 'big' to see the moon dust swirling and the sun drops scattering.

sophia says ta da all the time.

i love it. i love that it scrunched a little.

it's beautiful.

i like her costume, so hand woven looking like she made it herself..and that her face echoes the moon. i like how despite things lining upon an angle, everything is also spinning. and how the vertical ridges resulting from the kantha stitches seem to correct all the movements and bring me back to earth. like rain.
whew. that just came spilling out.

NICE! I see what you mean about the red butterfly. I love her where you put her, fluttering in the shadow of the moon. Have you named this piece, or do you do that??? I don't remember a name in an earlier post. I also love the texture all your wonderful stitches have given this piece. I wish I could touch it in real time!

Ta da .... and I love it! Those touches of orange and the indigo works so well. Such a beautiful little cloth.

A good day for finishing things. So many details that I like, but I think especially the sun's rays.

just love her denim jeans...at least that's what it looks like to me.

nandas said...

this is a very fine piece. everything works well together. the spinning moon is what makes it all right in keeping my eye moving in the right direction. the butterflies seem to be moving their wings. it is very animated!

linda said...

I also love it. I love all the french knots above her head and around the piece. It is wonderful to see the cloth scrunch up and be soft. Wish I could hold it as well..

I think this cloth is an altar, not an altar cloth, an altar...

Joyful and rhythmic.

Marti said...

SHE is...no need for anymore words except that this is so alive to me.

Patty said...

It went in the right direction. The
moon balances the kantha above which balances the figure which is balanced by the orange on the right.
Yet you left enough imbalance for it
to be in motion. Very nice!

TaDa!, back at you, Grace!
I enlarged your story cloth, LARGE, to
see the moon up close...... i love how
it radiates into the ripples of cloth, all
as one. que linda

nandas said...

And you ask, "What am I not doing?"
She says "Your voice cannot command.
In time, you will move mountains,
And it will come through your hands."

So whatever your hands find to do
You must do with all your heart
There are thoughts enough
To blow men's minds and tear great worlds apart

There's a healing touch to find you
On that broad highway somewhere
To lift you high
As music flying
Through the angel's hair.

Don't ask what you are not doing
Because your voice cannot command
In time we will move mountains
And it will come through your hands

helen said...

Grace and Nandas both: one powerful word of "wow".

nandas said...

its from a song by john hyatt

Full of your spirit!

Sandra said...

Hi thanks for your lovely reply on my blog, Grace! Yes, I going to search for a pair of overalls....and I too think that blogger is difficult if you want to reply to the comments.
And you're right to say TaDa, for it's great!

Els said...

Love it!!! Nice to have it enlarged to study all the details! The sun ... the half hidden moon ... the butterflies ... and your flying / floating lady !
TA DA !
