Good Sunday Morning!

Hope this finds you and yours well.  I have two works in progress to share today:

The first one showcases the hand dyed fabric patches recently purchased from Jude Hill of Spirit Cloth.  This is my attempt at joining in for her SunMoonStars project.  Over the past few days, I used Jude's glue baste method to prepare the patches for joining.  All patches were whip stitched together using a single strand of medium/dark gray DMC floss.  Eventually, I will add embellishments.  The patch packets from Jude sell quickly.  What attracted me the most about this particular packet (Cosmos #22) was the center Moon.  The texture of the fabric and the color of the Moon.  Although green is my ultimate favorite color, more and more I find myself leaning towards gray.  Maybe its because I am sprouting more gray hairs on my head?!  Love gray hair.
 This next piece is my own concoction of the nine patch with practice stitching and embellishing.  Again, a Jude inspired creation.  The blue patch with stars is actually pre-printed fabric.  Just seemed to fit in with the theme.  "Good Morning, Mr. Sunshine, you brighten up my days..."
