Last Fall when the goldenrod was in full bloom, I dye printed two wool pieces. One with the individual heads lined up, and the other with the heads laid out in a circle.

I cut and basted them on indigo dyed wool. This will be the next block for my Sun & Moon quilt.

In between the goldenrod rays I cut out other goldenrod dyed fabric following the string imprints.
There is only one place I want to stitch on this block,

 in the wilderness!
We went on a family picnic Up North along a river. There's a wonderful picnic ground on a point of land. The river winds around the point. You put in your tubes, etc. on one side and 1/2 hour later your around the other side.

You come up that side, eat some lunch and do it all again.

I found a peaceful part of the river for some hiking and photo taking.

I'm using the feather stitch to sew around the Sun and it's rays.

I do miss warm days on the water & stars on summer nights. The river looks like the one my sister Vicki has a place. I always loved going there. Your sun is perfect. Will it join your moons, or stand alone?
