A New Block

Nope, not writer's block. There haven't been any posts for a while, but it wasn't writer's block. Just a lot of little things conspiring to keep me from sewing and/or from the computer.

To get back into the swing of things, I thought that I would show you my (almost) finished block from the embroidered quilt block of the month project from The Raspberry Rabbits.  It's almost done, because Shell's block shows lace at the top and bottom. I don't have a lace that I like for this, so I'm still looking.

I have also finished stitching the third block in the series, but it is not yet assembled and embellished. That will be done soon.

  • Ginny is doing well, she seems fully recovered. 
  • Second daughter is back from Disney. The jazz band performed in the pouring rain, and then packed their performing clothes in plastic. Three days later, when the trailer arrived with the luggage, you can imagine the smell. Oh, well. They played well, and had fun. That is what counts.
  • First daughter should have arrived home from Great Britain the same night as her sister, but they were stranded in Philedelphia overnight. Apparently when a large group misses a connection, it is very hard to reschedule them these days. They survived a night in a nasty hotel, courtesy of   airline vouchers, and arrived home the next day. Good thing college students are adaptable.
  • Weasley, he's asleep. Like usual.
Hope your day is a sunny one!

Love the block! I'd never choose brown and blue, but it's beautiful together, and I love the buttons too!

Thanks, MGM. I actually took the floss to a quilt store, thinking I would buy some light blue or sand colored fabric to do the project. The floss looked better with the dark brown, so I went that way instead. Sometimes these projects have a mind of their own!
