Stitching Things Together

One of my visual preoccupations is with stitching - actual or virtual, real or metaphoric. I like to see how things are connected. When things are collaged together, the challenge can sometimes be in seeing the connections. Crow, pumpkin, heart, beehive? Flight, fruit, flow, community? Magic, bounty, mystery, communion...?

Good Luck

I'm always intrigued with good luck symbols. After all, why does a four-leaf clover represent good luck or any luck at all?
