Upside down yoga quilting

Down dog or up dog?

Yesterday I thought the orientation below was what I wanted, but now I like up dog better -- the top photo.

Lesson from yoga: Be flexible but stop before it hurts.

(Down dog and up dog are yoga positions.)

I finished embroidering around the central motif this morning -- inside because it's cold and gray today. Now I have to decide if I want to use the same thread and stitch on the other motifs or change it up. I'll meditate on it!

Have a colorful day!
