Getting Ready for the Sun, Moon and Stars

Lately I have been revisiting natural Shibori dyeing, manipulating cloth in preparation for some slow stitching with Jude Hill, author and creator of the Spirit Cloth Blog.  I  have been quietly following her blog for several years, stitching along in the evenings on my own, but with no particular plan in mind.

Jude Hill has opened her “Sun Moon Stars” class to all.  For free.  It’s a class she has taught before but now will teach again.  This time I have cloth ready.  Samples below are all either cotton lawn or organic cotton jersey.  Soft cloth, easy to stitch.  Easy is sometimes good. You can find Spirit Cloth here:  http://spiritcloth.typepad.com/

Stitching posts will follow.  <Sun Moon Stars>  More dyeing, too.
