I love how this is looking.  Tho no embroidery yet.  Embroidery is one of my favorites so I am looking forward to that.  I just don't know if I should wash the starch and glue out first which means I will make the entire wall hanging and am looking at embroidery on a LARGE piece of work maybe 48 in x 64in (centimeters 122x 162).

Did you know that only the USA, Burma, and Liberia use imperial measurements of inches etc?  

The jade border you see will go around the work.  In the photo below, you can see how the border will form on on the other end of this center piece.  That is the section (chapter 5) I will be working on next.

The empty spaces such as the one in the lower left will have flowers pushing up from border piece to be attached later.  I hope the design will be organic, flowing, and coherent without obvious breaks.

I waited 5 years for the right fabric to come along-Good Vibes by Sue Zipken.

I cannot believe I will be 74 on Sunday which is good in a way because for several months I thought this was to be my 75th birthday so, haha, I gained a year.  Time flows differently when one is older.  I cannot remember the year without some thought_2021- as I never write checks anymore.
