I finished this little kit, which had been waiting patiently for about fifteen years. If I want to continue with fine embroidery, I’ve decided I need a magnifying glass!

This project sat around for about two years, until I put in the final effort to finish the punching, hemming, and backing. Rather groovy design.
I finished the vintage Hokusai bunka kit today. The ocean horizon line is crooked because it was still tacked in the frame when I took the picture. This type of embroidery may be a little dated, but I liked it so much I’ve been bidding on bunka yarn to try an original design.
I took 12 of my jumbo potholders and stitched them together into this rug, which I’m currently using as a bathmat. Strangely, I haven’t had enough of potholders. I’m right on the edge of plunging in and buying 10 pounds of loopers!
