Is this the first image of the lunar farside from a terrestrial observer? While googling for information about Korolev for the Jan 14 box that holds moonstones, of course! (Scroll down to Dec 24 and 22). Oh yes, do you see Korolev? It’s the smaller yellow-floored patch above the topographic blues of the South Pole-Aitken basin.
I decided to stitch in some of the major craters in padded satin stitch before beginning the French knots. I used three strands of embroidery cotton for the satin stitch and some of the knots. Other knots are worked in two strands. Mostly I am doing three wraps, but occasionally four or five to vary the sizes of the knots. From Nov 24 Two Cents.
