Blessings

Here is a little something that I did this weekend. I have really "gotten into" this embroidery. This block is going to be the center of a small wallhanging. I decided to combine some applique and embroidery together. All of it is stitched by hand. Now, I have to add the borders. Is this for someone you ask? Nope, just playing around. It is a bit out of my "comfort zone" with the bright colors, but it is a fun project. You see, my studio is a separate building from my house. My hubby is not feeling well and I'm trying to spend time with him since he is in "lock-down" (meaning it is very unusual for him to not have any energy to do anything) AND it keeps me busy while watching TV .
Stay tuned for the final product.
