- The sun and the moon

Yesterday's waxing gibbous moon got its promised stitch makeover. Better yet, we we were treated to a spectacular sunset last night at G's house, so it too made it onto a patch ...


Things are warping a bit from all the split backstitch, even though the patches were backed with harem cloth ...


I'm not worried though. By the time the January strip of patches is stitched onto the February strip of patches, I'm thinking things will balance out. 

And if not, I'll just blame any wonkiness on gravitational forces beyond my control.

Nota Bene: Roxanne Lasky's blog has moved to a new address and I'm flattered that she included my KEEP patches in her most recent post:

Thanks for showing the back. I have harem cloth to back the chuppah cover I am working on and I am glad to see you using it with linen, as is my plan. These patches are so great. I look forward to seeing what each day brings.

You're welcome ... I figure if I ask to see everyone else's backs I should do the same.

And thanks for the encouragement. It's been fun having a little something new each day, much more interesting to post than the continuation of kantha on a long cloth (which has stalled because I hit a bad patch which I may end up taking out).

I'm glad you like them ... I'll keep doing it as long as I'm having fun!

Can't imagine what I'd do without it!
