Hearts stitch journal 05 January 2018

     

It was dry this morning but very dark with eight eighths cloud cover. The moon was diffused and cream-coloured, lighting up the gunmetal grey clouds. I had no thread the right colour today, so I pulled threads from a piece of silk shantung – they are lustrous but fuzzy (I had to keep pulling off the frass that built up along the thread with each stitch). The shantung was a sleeve from a summer coat I made many years ago. I also added in grey thread for the last few passes, to show the falloff in the moonlight.
