moonday cloth

A patched sidebar was added to the little moon cloth. And some couching. This is still a pleasure to stitch on so it continues to grow.



Today is a waxing moonday in earthy Virgo. We are drawn to matters of the physical and material realm and words like stable, capable, and practical come to mind. Detailed projects that need focused attention are accomplished more easily. Getting lost in our work, we may even have to consciously arrange for relaxation and fun on these Virgo days.

Virgo influences digestion -- stomach problems may be aggravated and, at the same time, are well-treated now. Stress is often a factor and one sure way for me to alleviate stress is list-making. Once a task is examined, prioritized, scheduled and listed, it seems to lose its heaviness and is already well on its way toward completion. I love making lists during Virgo time because of the sense of control I feel. Or the illusion thereof, it doesn't really matter I guess. Stitching neat lines onto cloth gives me that same feeling.

Although Virgo is an earth sign, it is a barren sign so not ideal for planting -- but it's a good time for other kinds of garden work, yard upkeep, and animal care.

I hope Virgo's favor helps you as it does me. xo

I'm feeling the need to take care of a pile of mending this day---the pile, a kind of "list" that I'll work through!

I'm also inspired by your lovely stitchings and will be trying some of this one day. Thank you, once again, Peggy. ;-) xox

Hi Chris, I like your idea of working through the pile like a list, that's so great. I hope to remember this, it may be especially helpful with housework, not my strong suit -- there are piles all over the house, it seems! :-)

Hi Deanna, thank you -- that's really my first time couching with strips of fabric. I loved doing it.

Thanks, Lyn! Am thinking about doing one on the other side but then again, it may be too much, we'll see....
