Blue Moon

Blue Moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue Moon
You know just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper please adore me
And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold

Blue Moon
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart

Here we go again, I'm posting the lyrics to Blue Moon so that they can be in your head. :-)

For now, the Zecca Blue Moon canvas that is our current mystery class is all about the moon.  It's exactly where we started in today's class.  A big shiny moon that glows oh so quietly in the dark.  Yes, it glows.

I had this idea.  I wanted a subtle glow in an open stitch.  So first I called Sally at Rainbow Gallery and asked her what the chances were of getting Petite Silk Lamé Braid in glow in the dark.  Done!

Then I chose a stitch that Brenda gave Carol for the background of the Cooking Baking Lady from Maggie in our last class.  I loved that stitch and really wanted to use it.

Then I just couldn't stop.  I added another layer to the stitch with a different thread and violá a new stitch is born.  I've got more to say on that topic but will save it for the next post.

After the moon, the next area I wanted to tackle was the tree. It's full of texture and dark.

Here's today's class progress, moon and tree. 

Just wait until you see what's next!

OOOH!  And now for the go-withs! We have super cute owl fobs in several different varieties.

And of course, owl snap trays.  Isn't her face just the cutest.  You know she's the girl owl that our boy owl is serenading.   :-)

Until next time.
