use the experience wisely (2)
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
— Auguste Rodin (1840–1917)
I've twice stitched a C8 with interwoven kiku stars (see no. 29 and no. 66), but this is the first with interwoven, layered stars — that is, each of the six eight-point stars has four points that are "interlocked" with points of other stars.
Very light bluish green (celadon) thread wrap; C8 division with metallic silver; embroidery in four gradated shades of blue-green. The quote by Auguste Rodin is in the bell box along with 7 brass rings. Circumference: 10.625 inches / 27 cm; diameter: 3.38 inches / 8.59 cm. Completed 20 January 2011 (no. 090).
