Sketching and Stitching!

6June2011 Sketch LPBoni 1
I've been neglecting my sketchbook for far too long, so decided that the only remedy was to get it out and start doing a small sketch each day. What better to sketch than what has been distracting me from sketching?!

Block 4 is coming along nicely! Only 3 or 4 more spots (maybe 5) to fill and then I can begin assembling the quilt! Knowing it is so close provides great motivation to get this project finished!

Wow. When you take a photograph of a small area of stitching and blow it up larger than life, it really shows off all the uneven-ness. Yikes! I guess I need to make that call to the eye Dr. and get some new stitching glasses!

I'm much happier with the butterfly, though it also has it's faults. I added some beads to decorate the needle lace medallion. And what I like the most is this spray of Cast-On stitch flowers! I've learned so many new stitches working on these blocks! Now that I've got the hang of cast-on stitch, I think I'm finally ready to try bouillon stitches again!

I think your blog should be called Ivory Blush Beautiful.

And I really think that you should publish a book of illustrations together with instructions for projects...a la Susan Branch. It would be awesome and I would buy lots and lots of copies and give them to all my friends.

Your branch of buttonhole leaves, your cast on flower...all of it is lovely.

Just waiting for your book to come out...

Beautiful beautiful blog....
