Empty Space

I received the The Mystery Sketcher's book two weeks ago, and the art work was a delightful patchwork of designs that I mimicked in this embroidery piece.  Originally, I intended to complete each of the squares with different designs, a way to practice different stitches.  However, I ran out of time, so decided to focus on the four corners, giving myself permission to leave it incomplete.  But then, I decided to look at this piece differently and see the empty spaces as intentional.  I need those empty spaces in my life-unscheduled time for family, friends, and myself-to do with what I want, or to do absolutely nothing at all.
