Thank you all for your kind comments on my last post. Those women all played an important role in my life. It was a good day to reflect on them and what they have done.
I did some stitching last night - it doesn't look like much but I needed to take my time with it so that it would turn out exactly right. This is some pre-stitching that I needed to complete for an upcoming class that I am taking...a road trip is in my near future!
Over the weekend I was doing some spring cleaning and came across a piece of needlework that I wanted to share with you. About 17 years ago I had the opportunity to travel to China. I spent time in Beijing and Shanghai and saw many interesting things. I never ever thought that I would see the Great Wall - what an amazing sight that was. Anyway, I tried to bring home souvenirs that were meaningful to me - many of the other women I was with were buying jewelry (pearls), instead, I looked for needlework. I purchased these two pieces while I was there. The first one I have framed and hanging on the wall in my bedroom. It's white on white and it's covered with very intricate stitches:
While cleaning this weekend, I came across the second piece that I had purchased. It has been hiding in the bottom of a drawer! Similar design, but done with pastel colored threads.
The two pieces are about 12 inches square. I feel as though I need to get this second piece out of the drawer and use it in some way (I should be enjoying it!) Any thoughts on what I should do with it? I could put it in the china cabinet - at least it would be seen there. If you have any good ideas, let me know.
The start of a new week - I hope it is a good one for you. Thanks for stopping by!
