I just realized this morning that I had never posted the completed picture of this block!
It's definitely my favorite so far!
This one is ready for the last layer - dark green to pull out that color from the center :) It's already beautiful, don't you think? That bold pink is amazing!!! When it's finished, there will be four POTC blocks on the finished pile - woohoo!!!
Today is going to be a very busy day for me, so I doubt I'll get around to much Slow Stitching with Kathy and the girls, but if I want to do any stitching next week, I'd better take time to get a few more blocks prepped.
Here are some fabrics I've pulled to see how they will work as POTC blocks....
|Picked this one up in Indiana last week - that's a gorgeous deep orange!|
|Same pattern in two colorways - red and white|
|Stripe border print for the above two poinsettia prints|
|One of my favorite fabrics EVER!!!|
But it might be tricky to get a clean design.....
|I seem to be liking deep pinks quite a lot lately, don't I?|
I always enjoy having a slow stitching project at hand, ready to pick up whenever I sit to watch TV or go away for a few days. But I've found that the key to my success and happiness with any hand project is PREPARATION! I have to take the time to prepare or that project will end up languishing. Believe me, I have several who have already met that fate, so I know!
Are you taking it slow today?
