Leafy Moon

Hello Lettuce Crafters,
I recently saw a pretty pattern that I wanted to embroider called Leafy Moons, it’s a free pattern offered by the textile artist, Jenny Blair. Instead of stitching paper as designed, I stitched this leafy moon on a new tea towel I already had in my stash.

I chose a muted palette of sagey greens, mauvy pink, light blue and soft yellow. I added a few more stars than was written on the pattern, but kept it pretty simple.

It’s been a long time since I’ve stitched or made anything for the pleasure of making, I enjoyed these familiar movements, needle up, needle down - repeat. My meditation.
