A Work In Progress...

I am currently working on this appliqued wall hanging. I love the colors - so bright and happy! It's 10.5 inches x 18.5 inches in size. When creating my fabric pieces - like this one - I use my version of artist Susan Shie's "Lucky Magnolia Stitching Technique". I have completed the stitching of the background and I am now working on the stitching around the flower and the stitching of the border. Once all of the stitching is complete, I will begin adding other embellishments such as beads and buttons. All of the stitching and embellishing takes a lot of time but I find it very soothing - like meditation.

Have you ever entered your works in any of the fairs?
Maybe, you should.
Because you do this professionally I don't know the rules about that. Do you?
