moon of mine
Love is bound,
Moon of mine (repeat 100x or so)
I loved thinking about them, and dyeing and then stitching them. These moons of mine, oh how I love them. February's dye & stitch mandala, is complete -- part of my moon art ritual for 2014, #2 in the series of 13 moondalas. This one is a pansy-dyed background with a raspberry-dyed moon stitched with embroidery floss. January's is a grape-dyed background with an undyed white wool moon. They are about 4" square.
It is the dark of the moon now and I'm trying to be more still, to do one thing at a time. No multi-tasking allowed -- even stitching and knitting in silence. No radio, no music, no podcasts -- only the sounds of the dogs sighing as they fall asleep and their yips and growls as they chase rabbits and squirrels in their dreams.
Thanks for visiting and happy weekending to you. I'll be knitting sleeves on a certain purple february lady sweater as well as making a permanent impression on the seat of my chair. That kind of multi-tasking cannot be avoided. xo
