at home in this universe
When I learn something new—and it happens every day—I feel a little more at home in this universe, a little more comfortable in the nest.
— Bill Moyers (1934– )
A symmetrical composition: an S20 division, each pole has four 5-point kiku herringbone stars in four colors. Browns for the nest, and midnight blue for the universe; the pattern & color placement create a kaleidoscopic effect.
Thread wrap in midnight blue; S20 division in metallic copper. Embroidery in four gradated shades from dark beige-brown to light-beige brown. The quote by Bill Moyers is in the bell box along with 17 brass rings. Circumference: 10.5 inches / 26.8 cm; diameter: 3.34 inches / 8.53 cm. Completed 21 April 2012 (no. 112).
