a single thread in nature (3)

If one pulls on a single thread in nature, you'll find it attached to everything else.
— John Muir (1838–1914)

Here's the third of the triad stitched around the Muir quote (see the first here and the second here). Again, mutsume ami—the basket weave—like the first, but with 6 filled triangles and just two unadorned.

Thread wrap in silvery lilac gray, S4 division. Embroidery in violet, lavender, lilac, rust orange, and black. The quote by John Muir is in the bell box, along with 17 brass rings. Circumference: 9.5 inches / 24.5 cm; diameter: 3 inches / 7.8 cm. Completed 4 August 2012 (no. 134).
