I realized pretty soon into this project that I do not have the stitching skills nor the boundless imagination needed to stitch a complete picture for each of 100 squares. Also, I really like incorporating lace and other little bits of things into my sampler, like I did on my 39 squares sampler. So, here and there I will have a collage square, and this is one of them.
For this square, I stitched two rows out of this delicate vintage lace, and then put yellow French knots on top. It's going to stand for the blessing of health. I try not to take my health for granted, but there's nothing like a little speed bump (or a herniated disk!) to wake you up and make you appreciate having a fully functioning, healthy body. I'm slowly getting back to normal now, with less and less pain from the back issue, and now I'm planning to re-dedicate myself to being as healthy as I can be, each day.
So, for today I celebrate the blessing of health, and wish all of you much health and happiness!
