Finished embroidery

I finished another little embroidery square. This was a little doodle of Lui that I sketched on the linen with a wash-away marker. It was fun fillling it in and adding french knots here and there - I even improved upon my satin stitch!

I'm having visions of making a quilt - embroidered squares combined with plain squares of linen or cotton in matching hues. Hah - you know it will never happen! For one thing, I've never made a quilt before, and I'm quite turned off by the idea of having to measure and be precise and get everything exactly right. However, I'm enjoying playing on these little squares, so I'll continue with them. I'll just tell myself that I'm actually going to use them on something one day.
