DH and I spent the morning packing and cleaning out our bedroom for our move in two weeks. Way in the back of my closet I found an oxford blouse that my grandma stitched Holly Hobby on for me about 30 years ago. The design is about 12 inches tall. The shirt is stained and not wearable, but the stitchery is still in great shape. Isn't she adorable?
Once we move I think I'm going to cut the stitchery away from the blouse and make it into a wallhanging. I can't to put something my grandma made in my studio. I have an oval canvas that's been hanging out in my closet. I think she will fit perfectly on the canvas.
Thanks for all the encouragement on appliqué. I'm not going to give up. I'll keep working on it until I find the method that works best for me.
Well, lunch break is over. Time to do some more packing. A couple more hours today and then we'll stop. Other than the bedroom, I've decluttered the bathroom and cleaned the fridge. Now we are going to work on the dining room.
