Unabashed

This is one of the last items I sewed by hand. I worked on it this year, just before I started using the wheelchair more to get around the house. It seems using my hands for wheeling me around and using them for fine stitching are mutually exclusive. I'd MUCH rather be mobile :-}

So, After I finished working on her, I did my first elaborate machine stitched project, a Greenman to represent Earth in a 4 quarters swap.

It was wonderful to find out I could still create something satisfying to me using a machine. A few years ago I much preferred the look of hand applique, now I like both.
