Every single soul is a poem.

Every single soul is a poem.
— Michael Franti (1966–)

This is the first time I've tried this design — a wrapped band variation, with the threads crossing the obi and gathered/bundled as the obi is stitched. I was inspired by photos in a book by Mary Wood. I also wanted to do another two-color thread wrap, here in medium and ice blue.

Dual thread wrap in medium blue and ice blue; S4 division (no guidelines); embroidery in blues, grays, and lavenders. The quote above by Michael Franti is in the bell box along with 17 brass rings. Circumference: 10.25 inches / 26 cm; diameter: 3.26 inches / 8.3 cm. Completed 28 November 2011 (no. 068).

With it in the last picture is my second try at this pattern, no. 70.
