I've been busy trying to complete my challenge piece for Tangled Textiles. I had written about the process here and here and here. I've added some embroidery and done some cedar boughs with free motion stitching. I just need to wash away the stabilizer on the cedar boughs.
Reveal day is November 24th so I still have a day or two left. The quilting and binding still need to be done. I'd best get going. Stop by to see the end result.

there's no time like the present to make a few small ornaments that can be given to brighten a hospital room or senior's care home. Amazing what one can come up with using a few equilateral triangles, some folds, and some beads.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
---Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
