I stumbled upon a nice sketch of a couple of hands folded in prayer. It looked secular enough to be presented to my husband's commandant. So I embroidered it in cross stitch on a casement cloth. I am not sure what it is called outside India, it is a fabric with symmetrical weave, ideal for cross stitch, only it is very, very, very small.
So I sat with the piece for a week, and my hands and eyes burned for another one week, but I finished it, and presented it. I was so pleased that it was well received.
Here is the piece, with a staples box for size comparison.

Sorry, I don't have a pic of framed final piece, I forgot to take one before I gave it away...
PS: Later my husband sent me a link. Apparently there's a story behind these hands, and an inspiring one at that!!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Wow! It is so pretty and such a wonderful story behind it. I can't believe how small it is, my eyes would have gone cross.
