It may be square, but I love the inner shapes of this design.

? To dream of places yet to see, to wonder how it all will be,
Life takes us in many directions, some planned, some unexpected.
Let your inner compass guide you on your journey,
to connect with others and join in harmony,
bringing more love into the world and all our lives. ?

Again this was one of those designs that flowed from the heart, and is a mix of simple squares and more complex ones. And you guessed it… being one of my designs, there is lots of texture and interesting stitches.
