Stars and Moons


Today I stenciled on some stars and moons. I think it softens the turquoise a bit. I have a large piece of snow dye that should fit the back. I will probably quilt this one with silver thread like the last one. I had thought I'd use gold but now that it's done I think silver will work better.

I like this one a lot - the snow dyed fabric border suits it perfectly along with the stars and moons. Of course purple and blue are two of my favourite colours!!

The stencilling REALLY works! Just lovely and I think with all the cool colours, silver will be better than gold for sure. Gorgeous, Joyce!

Your stenciling adds just the right amount of that little something of extra special!!
I just thought of something Joyce! You probably don't have many UFOs/WIPs/PhDs hanging around at your place do you!? It seems you are very good at seeing something through to the end very quickly...
