It now lives on the wall down in my sewing room where I can enjoy it everyday.
This week I also finished another project from Patchwork Loves Embroidery, by Gail Pan. The embroidery was finished in August of last year.
Although the book shows this design made into a tote bag, I decided this would make a great zipper pouch for a friend who does lots of hand sewing. So I sewed two panels for the front and back of the pouch.
After I did some simple quilting to hold everything together, and sewed in the zipper, the pouch was a quick finish!
The black and red fabric that I used for this project is a Jo Morton line, and I loved the selvage from it.
I don't know if you can see, but it says, "Life's a journey not a race."
Switching gears for slow-stitching this week, I'm ready to start on the first block of the Book Club Hand-Pieced QAL, "Evelyn."
I'm going to be making the blocks for the QAL out of a variety of red prints with Kona Snow for the background.
