By yesterday afternoon, I was feeling so much better, even got in a run which is very good news.
As I was puttering in my sewing room yesterday, I found parts of this project. I believe it was started about 3 1/2 years ago at my summer quilt retreat. The squares were meant to be a border for an applique center that never really came together. When I pulled them out yesterday, I remembered how much I loved these fabrics and I could not let them go. Two things came to mind. 1) this piece needed some circles and 2) this would be a wonderful base for some embroidery, big stitch quilting, and perhaps some surface embellishments. I began to cut circles and immediately knew this would be my new stitched prayers quilt. This morning I added a few more potential half circles and see the the spotted one at the bottom needs to be moved to the right side. I am thinking some variegated pearle cotton in shades of orange and some word beads. This is going to be a lovely slow stitching project.
Be sure to visit Kathy to see what other slow stitching is happening today.
