It was the shortest day today
and not a very bright one.
So I sat near the window to finish
my little solstice quiltlet
Winter solstice 2014
For the sun rays using kantha stitches, worked out pretty good, I think.
(in fact with kantha stitching you use running stitches that
are paired neatly next to each other, which gives
the funny looking rivulets in the fabric)
Here are the two solstice pieces sisterly (or is it brotherly ?)
next to each other.
And on the backside too.
The sun goes to its turning point and the days are (slowly)
(for the northern hemisphere that is ...)
I wish a lot of warm and bright days
to anyone who need it.
