I have been devoting most of my time (when not at work) to a new piece. I'm not ready to post pictures because it is a gift for someone and it has to be ready within the next 7 days! It is the largest piece I've ever done and certainly the most colorful! It has required a lot of hand sewing applique and now I am working on the embroidery. So far, I am super happy with it but the true test will be how the recipient likes it! (fingers crossed!).
As soon as it has been gifted, I will post photos!
PS. Holes in my fingers? Yes, I often stab myself on the threaded needles while I'm sewing - especially during the applique process! Of course, I accidentally impale myself on the pins, too.... (so clumsy!)
