this very moment
This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, luckily for us, it's with us wherever we are.
— Pema Chödrön
Another wrapped band variation in the style of "Wishing Papers," as I refine the design with the best (for me) circumference, number of rows, number of threads per row, and obi width to make it all fall into place tidily and be as aesthetically pleasing as possible! I do believe this is my favorite one so far.
Thread wrap in light slightly-bluish green (celadon green, I call it); S6 division with fine metallic silver; embroidery in four shades of celadon (even kind of jade) green and ecru. The quotation above by Pema Chödrön is in the bell box along with seven brass rings. Circumference: 10 inches / 25.5 cm; diameter: just over 3 inches / 8 cm. Completed 14 September 2011 (no. 028).
