Here it is, my hand embroidered and hand quilted wall hanging. I'm so glad that I dug this embroidery out of my "orphan blocks" box. Now I can hang it on the wall. I made a cross stitch picture with the words of the Ten Commandments once. It took me ages to finish it. I have that hanging on my bedroom wall. I ought to publish it here someday. Meanwhile, although I've been a bit side-tracked lately, I did manage to cut out a big bunch of strips for putting those log cabin blocks together. And I handed in the finished granny square afghan (pictured here recently) to the Nifty Knitters group. It will be sent to the organization that helps homeless people to get off the street and into housing. The ladies who helped me with crocheting the afghan were pleased with the finished result. Because of the way the blocks were crocheted together instead of just being sewn, the discrepancies in the sizes of the various blocks were mitigated.
