Return of the Prodigal Daughter - Me

Get out your fatted calf, I'm back.

I've been sad for a long time. Reading helped to hide, and napping too much. But now I've given myself permission to do what I want. Forget some stuff and glory in some other stuff and move on.

I don't like the quilt I'm working on for H2H... caused me to not touch fabric in months. So I decided to work on a few smalls that I've wanted to try for years. Here's one that was inspired by Monika KW  at My Sweet Prairie Studio - Love her work.  Sorry the pics are so blurry.

 Machine embroidery on top of fabrics for a landscape look. I'm thinking of a few "flowers" embroidered in the lower right.  What do you think?

And of course, this is paper piecing. Making a Cosmos from the Pieced Flowers book by Ruth B. McDowell.  I upped the size on my printer and used the straight seam design... but it's not quite a paper piecing design. I've had to change some of the seam lines to paper piece.
Hope you all are doing well, and thanks for stopping in to see my stuff.
