I began this quilt piece over the summer after re-reading THE AlCHEMIST.
For anyone who is looking for a really good book that can be read
in a short period of time, I recommend this book!
It is the magical story of a young boy named Santiago,
an Andalusian shepherd boy who travels in search of worldly treasure.
From his home in Spain, he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across
the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist.
The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us
about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the
signs and omens along life’s path, and, above all, follow our dreams!
And I will add, sometimes “the acre of diamonds” is right before us.
The wording was interesting because I chose a pinkish colored thread that
I thought would look good. I embroidered the words and was pleased but
when I took my piece in the daylight, I was not pleased. The pinkish color
I chose looked good in the soft light of my desk but, once in the daylight
looked like a watermelon color. So, I added the white thread and was
not really overly pleased with that. Finally, I opted to outline the words
in my favorite color…turquoise.
I know it is “puckering” and I did start to do some kantha stitching but, it was too busy.
I decided once the quilt piece in sewn in place I can smooth it out.
Lastly, thank you Tawny Moon
