"Star Gazing"

Here is a "Star Gazing" pocket.  Once again my 'stash of stuff' came to the rescue.  A rusty star, cut sort of cockeyed, was just the thing to hang in the center front of the pocket.

As you can see spirals worked their way into the scheme on the back of this pocket.  For the 'trim' fiber I used Wildflower's 'kelp' with those rusty gold tones that you see in kelp washed up along the shore and the aqua of the sea.
I think tonight, if the sky is clear, I'll step out into the summer evening and see how many stars I can count in the dark heavens.

"Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star". - W. Clement Stone


  1. Delightful!

    ..and I love that jade-green colour you've used there..

  2. Last night we went out at eleven o'clock to watch the international space station go overhead - it's a wonderful sight!

  3. Another one already! You're really stocking up! It will be a great show.

  4. Greetings from Tunisia! Came to visit your blog from Morna Crite Moore's blog and I'm enjoying your beautiful work while trying to beat the heat. The "pockets" are just so lovely--meticulous work and subtle colors.
    best, nadia

  5. Penny, again, you have created a beautiful treasure. Your work always touches me. We must be soul-mates!

  6. Excuse me for sending this comment directly to Nadia. I usually answer all comments with private emails but I couldn't find your email address. I wanted to thank you for visiting me from so far away. Your blog is great and I look forward to reading it. Thanks for stopping by.
