My thread order has arrived
Must say, it's been fascinating watching it's progress
through the postal system
as it came northwards from Louisiana.
As I waited I worked on new beginnings.
Stitching together new pathways from scraps left over from
last year's stones.
Surprisingly the brown family of scraps seem to belong
with a few precious pieces of silk that I have been saving
for just the right opportunity.
And the greys seem to go perfectly with a couple of linens.
One of last year's stones was cut out of a favourite grey silk.
I remember at the time being shocked that I would do such a thing.
Recently I came across the silk amidst the stone scraps
and was shocked once again to see a great big round hole in it!
So decided now is the time to honour it in it's entirety.
I have been thinking a lot about darning and mending recently.
My initial thought was to just darn the hole
....I spied a square of ruching that has been looking for just the right home.
It fit perfectly over my stoney hole
and I like it.
Three new pieces to in their infancy.
But for now back to stitching Stone Pathway backgrounds.
