|Serenity in progress|
I cut all of the bushes and assembled the face first. Then, in the evening for the next two weeks, I embroidered the cascading water using single strand cotton embroidery floss in white, pale yellow, gray, silver and the palest of blue. Yes, my husband reminded me that I am a special kind of crazy.
|Serenity finished and hung|
Once I was happy with all of the embroidery, I hand-quilted the piece using several different colors of hand-quilting thread. After all... I didn't want the quilting itself to show - just the affect of it. For a piece measuring 14 x 20 inches, it took way too much time. But I feel it was time well spent - I'm happy with this one, which is good!
