Linda H. has found a use for scraps and embroidery testings….putting them on pre-stretched art canvas, finishing the back, and hanging them on the wall in her sewing room. We think they look great!

Hexagons are “in” now, so I designed a block in the CutWork software that makes a small grandmother’s flower garden flower in just two pieces. When it is embroidered you can’t tell it’s not made from individual hexagons like a traditional block!
