Stitching The Day Away...

  I'm working on my commission project these days. I finished another one of five
yesterday. Each will be a different colorway, but otherwise they'll be the same.
This piece was "in-progress" when I took these pictures. I finished it by the end
of the day. Today, I'll continue on the next one and will have them all completed
very soon. Although this is a contracted project, it is also a labor of love.

Embroidery is a pursuit that calms, restores and rejuvenates me. Stitching is
always a zen experience and it seems that time stands still when I have a needle
in my hand. I have to remember to thank my client (and friend) for the request.

Love those ribbon roses. And I'm not a fan of purple/lilac, but that is just gorgeous. Will you post what the ground fabric is, please?

I can see the calm and beauty your hand with needle stitch into such special gifts. I hope you show all five colorways. Blissful day dear...
