Since I'm back from the holidays
the Sun and moons piece
is my steady companion.

I started adding a little piece of Birgit´s lace
but then ...
stitches, stitches and even more stitches.
I even took the piece to the St´nB in Rotterdam last Saturday !

And now, on this last day of August,

again  more stitches.

In places where I´ve been already before with blues
I go back in with other colours,
like the Salmon Moon.

I pick a colour from my big "thread nest"

and just look for a place that needs some more stitches.

I did some stitches on the legs of the Butterfly Moon
and she looks a lot better since I fixed the left side of her blue wings 
with fine lines of split backstitch
so it´s more of a unity with the other `megamendung` parts.

Large pieces, that were still only the loose, swirly blue fabric,
are now firmly quilted to the back
(although you hardly see anything of it !)

The dark (striped) circle behind the sun
will be more clear when I finish the red stitches around it.

A lot more (unseen) stitches needed
slowly going !

  1. You can go on and on stitching that piece can't you? Looking lovely Els!

  2. Oh, I would like to make sun and moons myself too, so pretty.

  3. I would like to touch it - so beautiful. I´ll go to my stash immediately and search some fabric for a sun piece as well. I´ m longing for slowly going ...

  4. So lovely, Els. And I say the more stitching, the better!
    I have a thread nest just like yours! xo

  5. Wie schön!
    So viele Sonnenlichter!
