I started that top piece years ago, I think when Anthropologie first came to Denver and they had those big pillows with random applique, embroidery, and needlepoint all over them. I really enjoy this way of doing applique -- fitting colorful little pieces into small areas. When I don't know what to do and am trying to make a decision on a sewing project, I sometimes pick this one up for a few minutes. It's the epitome of slow cloth.
It dawned on me this morning that there's an orange thing going. From the sun/moon cloth to the random applique to new on-sale hand towels. To surrender to this orange thing -- the half-sun cloth is becoming the November moon cloth. November's calendar cloth needs some toning down so it's soaking in the acorn dye-bath for a while.
Today is a waning moon tuesday in the sign of Gemini. Gemini days feel light and airy and energetic -- good for running errands, making preparations, and brainstorming. Gemini also makes us feel very social, so meetings and outings with friends might come together now with very little effort. I always notice that Gemini days are fun.
To a week doing whatever we want. How about that?
