Quilt

I had this top sewn since one of the Nancy Crow retreats years ago. It is a motif I was working with but looked so blank that I didn't finish it.

Hand stitching with Perle Cotton and Embroidery Floss seemed to be the answer. Most of the thread are ones I dyed or painted.

Here's another detail.

I'm much happier with it now and want to continue this idea once the puppy doesn't need so much attention.

I love this, love the broken circle thing. I've always admired it in others' work.

Smashing and the hand stitching just lifts the design beautifully!
