I've been in love with laurel wreaths lately. I want to draw them or paint them or stitch them all over the place. This little hoop was done for my mother in law's birthday. She loved it and I am glad because I almost didn't finish it to give it to her. I started doubting her reaction to it but Billy thought it was lovely so I kept stitching. And wouldn't you know! I love how it turned out. I am so not technical when it comes to embroidery, I just freehand penciled this whole scene at record speed. I really should learn to be more methodical! Even so, it was enjoyable and ever satisfying to use my hands.
