I am trying to get all the little half finished projects that are lying around my place completed, so I can feel some sense of progress after being stuck in a creative rut for most of this year. I first posted about this relaxing embroidery last October, so it's been sitting around for a long time...
It started off being a relaxing fun embroidery, which I could pick up any time and do a little bit of work on, but by this year it had become buried under layers of drawings, calico, and various bits of pretty fabric and whenever I uncovered it, it stared accusingly at me, reminding me that my creative spirit had gone walkabout.
But after finishing the last embroidery 'One must have sunshine' I felt more motivated. I uncovered a few of those unfinished pieces, and kept sewing.
Now I can move on to the next unfinished project.

I really love the quotation on this one...'just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower'.
I tried to take photos as it progressed, so if I make it into a pattern, you can see the detail.
