embroidery in the corner

There has been something I have been wanting to share with you, a little something I have been working on these days. The embroidery bug bit hard back in the spring and when I discovered this free pattern I almost tripped over myself in the process of starting to stitch one. I have little wall space in the sun room, but still I thought using this design with the rug's colors could be definitely squeezed into a corner somewhere.

 It does not scream,"Look at me!" when one walks into the room. But it certainly has a gentle and pleasing presence to catch your eye, as it is framed and hanging in a corner in the sun room now.

Wonderful. There's great satisfaction in making something yourself - all the better when you can admire/appreciate it daily.

I love it! How could you keep it from us for so long? I would have been showing you every step if I could do such nice work! :)

Blessings, Debbie
