the music of what happens

And that moment when the bird sings very close
To the music of what happens.
— Seamus Heaney (1939– )

Continuing on with spindles, I thought I'd try 5 layered spindles on an S20 division. Not as tidy, and maybe the circumference is a bit on the small side for this cause it was a tight fit, but I like the geometry of it; and the design reminds me of the "god's eyes" (Ojos de Dios) I used to make as a child.

Thread wrap in powder blue, S20 division in metallic copper. Embroidery in a total of 7 shades of brown, rust orange, beige, light yellow. The quote by from a poem by Seamus Heaney is in the bell box, along with 29 brass rings. Circumference: 11inches / 28 cm; diameter: 3.5 inches / 8.9 cm. Completed 29 May 2012 (no. 129).
