I posted this a couple days ago.
I did a bit more stitching and decided to go in a different direction. Another small piece I was working on seemed like it just might fit over the dark doors. This is a close-up of part of it.
And here it is in place
..I'm not calling the block done yet but for now, that's as far as I'm going. And since I seem to be in a mood for circles and moons I decided to do a moon in honor of my sister's birthday yesterday .... it was a half moon so here is my March 2nd moon..
I don't know how far I will go with this moon theme but it seems appropriate, the quilt is going to be a blanket after all.
And as I am looking at this work I am thinking of my mother. She was a master embroiderer as in The Embroiderers Guild of America certified master surface embroiderer. Her work was perfect. Maybe that's why I didn't like doing it. At any rate, she's not looking over my shoulder so I can do it any way I want and I suppose, if I keep at it, I might get close to perfect. I really don't care, I'm just having fun playing with fabric and thread.
