Inspiration

An on-line group that I belonged to individually created 12″ squares each month based on a suggested topic. The topic for this was “hand.”

I thought of crafting by hand – stitch, sew, paint. I thought of redwork, a traditional quilting style requiring embroidery with red thread. And I thought of the Valentine’s Day projects that so many of us have made by hand to show our love.
