I had hoped that this catch up post would show the entire front being done but alas, it is not nearly. Busy times here so I’ll take what I can get.
Embroidery is done! Each satin stitch section took over 3 hours! I’ve watched/listened to many podcasts and Bones episodes to get through these. Wow, so time consuming but they are really beautiful so the hours have paid off.
My bf and I spent some time together auditioning various solids and both agreed that light green will be a good color for the hand quilted border that will surround all this. That bottom center square is the shade. Hopefully it’ll be a nice addition. Will be shopping for that tomorrow.
Speaking of nice, this particular bouquet of fresh flowers (Iowa brings me flowers almost every week – he’s a catch, folks!) are so nice I took a photo. The vase is new to me – my Mom gave it to me as she downsizes for an upcoming move. Lovely, right?
Happy Spring, folks!
