Free motion stitching

There's not a whole lot showing as different. I've been free motion stitching a bit, slowly making my way around the leaves and flowers.

It takes time because I like to go back in with a darker value to give some depth as I did in the hosta below.

I went looking for a lazy boy that would suit my style and my needs this morning as I believe I may need one for comfort after my hip surgery. I think I found the one I want.

I'm quitting my sewing time a bit early now to run on a couple errands.

Oh, and I quickly put together this little pillow cover for my knee cushion.

I hope you're having a good week. Take a few minutes to be creative, nurture your soul, or to simply breathe and be.
