Well, after hours of embroidery and some beading, the painted aida cloth piece is almost done. I haven't decided how I will finish it yet. The question is whether to put it into a frame or finish it in another way. I'll have to try a couple of ideas and see what looks best.
This could become a new obsession. It's the perfect little project to take along in the car while my husband or son chauffeur me around or to work on while watching (or at least listening to) TV. I've already got a good stash of painted aida cloth from last weekend's playtime in the studio, so I'll be ready to start another one as soon as I get the design planned!
