Whispering velvet moon

This is my full moon art....I am thankful to be back to my stitching. I will have more time to focus on
my creative side now. (or at least I will try to make more time since Thanksgiving is past.) We will see...
I chose a beautiful green velvet to embroider the word "whispering" on....

I keep thinking of the song by Stevie Nicks, called Gyspy:

  So I'm back to the velvet underground,
                                                     back to the floor that I love, 
                                                     To a room with some lace and paper flowers....

Me on a hill in Vermont a long time ago... a very green place :)

This will become part of this quilt:

Me many moons ago....
Happy Full Moon

Sleepy stars...

  CC License View

Last night after a long day of work and running children around I looked at my stitching piles and pulled this out and decided to give myself a few moments of stitching. I literally fell asleep sitting up!
I did manage to wake myself up and finish the word "stars" as it was only partially finished from long ago. I stitched down an edge, which you really can not see and I began adding stitches to the cloth where you see the needle. (It's the little things :)

This was me in the early a.m. before work....I am not a late night person!
I am off to another busy day and week ahead. I am wishing you a wonderful week!
