Woven Women-The Eyes of the Butterfly

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…..

  1. 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.


  2. 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.

    Just wonderful. You are so talented.


  4. 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.
