|Life Is Beautiful Block #3
|Scenery at silent retreat
I recently read a blog post by Joshua Becker that reminded me of the benefits of silence that I was seeking ...the most underrated sound in our society. I learned that I do need silence, but can only tolerate it in smaller doses than a whole weekend!
So as I hand stitch today, I will be treating myself to some peace and quiet, while I work on block #4 of my Life is Beautiful project.
I had a little trouble with the heat transfer on my latest block. The ink transferred onto my ironing board cover right through the muslin. I don't know if I pressed too hard, or had the heat too high? Oh well, as you can see the cover is dirty and needs to be replaced anyway.
Next time I will be more careful.
I am enjoying the feather stitching on this pear design and hope to finish the block today.
Why not treat yourself to some silence while you enjoy some relaxing hand stitching? Link up your blog post below and share your progress with us:
