Jean loves cats and the color yellow. I went with the yellow, but I'll try my hardest to get a kitty on the inside with the scripture. Wish I could send a real one for the great comfort they provide.
This circle has my embroidery on it, using a variegated yellow thread. The flowers are from a ribbon that is white. Though barely visible here, the same stamp that is on the white bg piece, is stamped under the sentiment. I hope Jean likes the yellow and blue combination, the yellow represents sunshine and cheer, while the blue represents the vast sky and oceans.
I decided to see how long it took to do the embroidery while watching TV, it took 45 minutes.

Yellow, blue and white....it brings to mind gorgeous sun and white fluffy clouds against a deep sky...so uplifting - and the embroidered circle is like a beautiful sun. So much lovely dimension and texture, Jennifer, and I love your flowers!
