Stitching on the doodads!

Once the blue vase was stitched in place, it was time to add the gold doodads.  ( doodad: something unspecified whose name is either forgotten or unknown).  But first I had to choose the gold fabric.  I loved the pattern on this one, but it was just too light.

And this one was too dark.  I guess I would classify this as dark brown/gold.

This one suited my fancy!!

just right

So I stitched on some doodads.

It is time to start hand-quilting again.  I took a break through the holidays and Bruin was delighted!
