When I became a grandmother, I saw the world in a whole new way…. through the eyes of the butterfly…..
Seeing my grandson emerge, and witnessing him ‘spread his wings’ makes it so heartrendingly clear just how magical and fragile our precious world is.
In response, I wove this tapestry, which is a love song to my daughter and her son.
Becoming a grandmother means that I now sing a love song to all the tender new lives that we must nurture.
Tapestry: Woven Women-The Eyes of the Butterfly
by Noreen Crone-Findlay 2012-2013
approximately 14 inches wide by 36 inches tall
The yarn used in the tapestry is special to me for 2 reasons…. one is that most of it came from my mother’s collection of yarns, and the rest of it was spun by my beautiful daughter in love, Alliston Findlay.
Lots of precious threads here…..

Noreen – Exquisite. You have so much talent and love in your heart. I love to look at your wonderful creations. Thanks for sharing with us.
Thank you so much, Maurine! I appreciate your kindness so much!
Beauty and tenderness shine through this Noreen. I like the eyes of the butterfly, including the third eye – intuition. I look forward to seeing this one in person – there is so much detail and depth.
Thank you sooooo much, Terri 🙂 I am so pleased that you saw the Third Eye intuition butterfly… but of course, I am not surprised that you did 😀
Just wonderful. You are so talented.
Thank you so much, Paula! 🙂
This is beautiful, Noreen! I love the gorgeous tatted butterflies thatseem to link the two women. The shape of this piece reminds me of a doorway into some other dimension.
Thank you so much, Aleksa! I was really playing with the idea of the windows and portals being openings into another dimension, so I am so pleased that you see that 😀
