A few of my Wall Hangings with Embroidery
The blue block with a diamond center is a left over block from a runner / wall hanging you will see posted later. It reminded me of a quote which is part of the poem Desederata. I thought that the block had a look of the universe. The size of this block is 11 1/2 inches square.
The red and black wall hang in was also created from some more left over black and white blocks and was my first use of my new embroidery machine. This wall hanger is 25 inches square with a hanging pocket on the back. The word "Hope" is a little brighter than all the rest of the words. I love this type face with its subtle nuances.
You know that there are stories that come with all of my projects. This one involved my use of thread from my wife's sewing room. I used up two rolls of thread on the words "Wisdom, Courage and Strength" so by the time I got to "Hope" I had to change color and the brighter white only seemed natural.
