Free Motion Moon and Sky
Thank you to everyone who commented on Monday's post.
The general consensus was that it had to be a night sky with a shining moon, so here it is! I hadn't got any navy blue thread so I had to buy some, and I finally settled down for a spot of serious treadling this afternoon. Stitching the sky was tricky at times because the thread was difficult to see against the background. It was a bit like flying by radar. The stitched moon isn't perfectly round, and there is so much thread packed into a small space that it is stiff as a board.
I'm really pleased with the result. It is my first stitched landscape and now I have a hankering to do some more.
