Turn To The Sun Embroidery

Turn To The Sun Embroidery

We don't know if Janet Clare named this embroidery after the Maori Proverb - "turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you."  Whatever the reason, it's a beautiful embroidery and idea.  Especially right now.

Stitched on quilting cotton - Janet stitched hers on a piece of her own fabric - with cotton embroidery floss, Turn To the Sun uses a Backstitch, Satin Stitch and French Knots.  It's beautiful framed in the hoop, and it would make a lovely little pillow.  

Janet used her Lecien Cosmo Sky collection for the threads.
