Slowly (but surely!) the basket is filling up!
First, a few more flowers and buds…and some bird feet!
Finally! I stitched the bird in place…and I added a few more flowers.
And then more flowers, buds and leaves. I love it when the end is in sight!!
I am constructing some of the flowers off-block. Here is the front of the flower…
…and here is the back. Now it can be stitched onto the background. Because this flower has four layers, I trimmed out one of the layers so that it is not so thick.
I am almost caught up on Barbara Brackman’s Grandmother’s Choice Block of the Week.
This is “Alice’s Flag” from Week 7.
Week 9 is “Brick Pavement”.
Week 10 is “New York”.
Til next time….
