Sketching and Stitching!
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!
