Stitching the moon is very contemplative. In doing so I was considering how the whole moon is always there but it is not always visible. The only part we see is the reflected sun. Thus it is with people - the more of our light we can shine on those in need, the more they glow and reflect. Teachers and therapists can work on shining their light into the nooks and crannies of others and bring out the best. Parents the same.
This moon is discharged with bleach on to woven turban cotton and linen on a muslin backing with running Kantha style stitching.
Sebold - a fiction set within the first 24 hours of a woman murdering her mother. It was distasteful and gruesome at first but became a compulsive read quite quickly.
