moon cloth in hard twist

I prepared Moon Cloth for exhibition by signing my name.
I considered embroidering the title as well, but changed my mind.
careful, respectful, aware of my own art
each little thing

i've been thinking about signature. of late, leaving it off. wondering if the work itself could be that. could i let it go as that?

Jude, you've given me something to think about.

I've always thought it important for artists to sign their work.

I agree with the signature thing. To be or not to be and If I am….how to do it with style of some sorts. Wish I were there to see it. I love that place!

This is a very thoughtful, inviting piece. Thanks for sharing it.

It's not so much now, but for the future, with a signature there is never any doubt. Your work is very inspiring thank you for sharing.

It's beautiful and touching, reminiscent of a cocoon. I'm sure it will add a great deal to the show.

i've been doing mooncloths here as well. a natural outcome from my dyeing. Jude sent me here -this piece is a real beauty. as for signatures- i don't. i know what i've made.

Hi Judy, I love your work, I think it's mind blowing. I do a little stitching work myself and was wondering if you stitch by hand? Or do you use a machine - or a bit of both? cheers

I stitch almost entirely by hand. This includes the construction and the binding of my work.

Sometimes I do a little piecework on the machine, but not quilting or embroidery anymore.

And about the signature - I have thought about it and I do think it is important for the future. And for myself - I also like seeing the date embroidered onto the work - for me it adds another layer of time.
