I have a great finish to report. It's not a large piece, 25 x 25", but certainly used up alot of hand stitching time. The center piece was pre-printed and intended for quilting. I wanted to embroider it with color. I started it a few years ago, then it went into the closet for awhile.
Whenever you have a clear out, you uncover forgotten projects. I have rekindled my hand stitching phase and try to do it every evening. I started by finishing the stitching on this piece. Then it sat again, waiting for an appropriate border. I used Sulky 12 wt thread and 3-strand embroidery floss.
Then it sat again, waiting for an appropriate border. I put another border on it, it just didn't work. I took that border off, and chose this one. I like it.
I'm linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation. Hop on over there to see what other delightful projects are being created.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
