Made on Monday 23 – Transit of Mercury

My father and I almost shared a birthday, one day apart, in mid-June. In astrology, the ruling planet of our sun sign, Gemini, is Mercury. He wasn’t into astrology too much, but as a nautical type of guy, he knew something of astronomy. Today, on the seventh anniversary of his passing, our ruling planet made a quick trip across the face of the sun, and I thought he certainly would have had something to say about it. This one is for Dad.

Thanks for coming by, and have a great Monday!

  2. What a FABULOUS idea. I watched the transit but never considered commemorating it in fabric. Doubly wonderful that it is a reminder of your beloved father.
