This morning I sewed three of the applique pieces that I removed from the quilt I was planning on using as a backing for The Three Graces.
Then I tried to fit the “hair” now tea-stained around the face…
But it just didn’t feel right. It seemed to be less a person’s face and more a moon face. So I put the doily aside and tried something else…
When I put the crocheted roses around the face, it all fell into place. ” Hello Rose Moon”, I said out loud.
Then I went online to see if there is a Rose Moon. Rose Moon does show up as the June or Summer Solstice Full Moon. But is better known as the Thunder, Buck or Strawberry moon.
So I took a yoga break and as I was sat on my floor and twisted my upper body, I saw the quilt folded on the top shelf next to my books. It was the red pinwheels like stars that caught my attention.
This is where I left my Rose Moon for today. I have to figure out her placement on the new quilt backing. I won’t sew her down till I know for sure.
