Laundry Hen

Few days ago I was able to finally finish stitching Mrs. Laundry Hen (and made progress on some of my other WIP's, more on those later). The only thing I'm regretting now is the woven fusible backing ironed on the back, see those 'bubbles' ack, ... but, oh well, live and learn. Hoop marks still there, haven't ironed it yet. The last few stitches were for completing the laundry section, the grass, and flowers.
At the last minute I had to make changes to my goals for this month do to not feeling well and I'm ok with that,... so glad that with help, last month was a good one! 
Listening to upbuilding material as I hand embroider or as I work on English Paper Piecing serves as therapy for me. I think, that very soon, my therapeutic stitching sections will become frequent.
What is therapy for you?

  1. Congratulations on a finish! It's lovely! My August hope chest addition is almost finished; however, wouldn't you know ~ I ran out of floss for one of the most important sections! I need something for theraphy ~ time ~ to spend on quilting, piecing, crocheting, etc.

    1. Thanks! Time is essential for therapy. Look forward to seeing your finished hope chest addition once you are able to get more floss.

  3. Beautiful job! The whole piece is cute, but I especially like the basket of clothes with their bright colors and little flowers! This month I have finally worked on some embroidery and love sitting in my backyard swing in the evenings, stitching away. That's certainly a bit therapeutic for me.

  4. So cute! I need a laundry hen too, I have a job for her ;-)
    Perhaps the bubbles from the interfacing disappear after ironing!?

    1. Thanks! I thought about ironing, however I'm afraid they'll come back at some point :-(.

  5. I'm working on a towel with this very pattern right now! I always like to see the variations that different people will do when using the same pattern--my little hen is a blonde!
