Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos

Look carefully at the shapes and notice that the name of the each of the fates are visible
Hi Line
The theme of your project really intrigued me!  So far the result is the three fates: Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos.  
In Greek mythology Clotho, the youngest is the spinner who determines the time of birth and spins the thread of life on her distaff.  Lachesis measures the length of the thread to determine the length of life.  Atropos cuts the thread to determine the time of death.
They will be on their way to you soon.
Following 3 photos were submitted by Kirsten Glasbrook. 
I am planning to continue developing and working with this theme in my next large piece of work - interesting how one thing leads to another!

Kirsten has written a book  Tapestry Weaving .  She  is also  an accomplished tapestry weaver and you can see more of Kirsten's work on her website by clicking on the link:
