Skipping ahead

Page 8 of Moon Myth ...


because I'm still working on pages 6 and 7.

And yes, the clouds are vintage damask dyed by Deb Lacativa ... 


the rain is kantha on repurposed faux ikat worked with a single strand of DMC cotton floss ... the lightning worked in Jude's split backstitch using some of the silk I gathered for the wedding handkerchief project.
