Well, block #5 is mostly done. I am still thinking of what to use for the setting star points.
Marlene suggested the Arkansas traveler block and I found about seven different ones by that name, but I found this in several books and thought it might work.. I think the green leaf print as representing the trees surrounding her lake, blue for the water with the mist rising. I know Marlene loves embroidery and red work. Well, I sure could use a bit more practice. For thread I just used regular sewing thread because this in only a four inch block.
Marlene has been my blogging friend for as long as I have had my blog. Each of her comments is a blessing.
Marlene is a great example to us all, not only talking her faith but walking the talk, serving others through mission work and putting other's needs first.
How interesting it was to be sewing these little pieces together in church, while waiting for choir practice and the Good Friday service to begin. It seems there is more than stitching that connects us and I am ever blessed by her friendship.
And, if this tiny bit of embroidery was a challenge, I am going to have to practice a bit more, because the next person on my list is the "Queen" of stitchery.
Eeek! What have I gotten myself into???
Meanwhile, Tomorrow will be a super-busy day. There are three services to sing and I'm sure they will run overtime. Then my Cub Pack is running their Pinewood derby ... the only afternoon we could book at the American Club ... and that will be followed by Easter dinner back at home with family (and extended family).
My car is almost done but still needs to add a bit of weight. I wish that were as simple as feeding it!
I was thinking of adding nylon fish line hairs to his back but probably that would be more effort than it is worth.
The block of wood was chipped at the axle slots when it came out of the box and it did not do well when I added the feet in that location. I'm rather glad that a little cub did not get that block of wood to deal with.
I remember the days when I used to look forward to the weekends to recover and re-group after a busy week. Now I am beginning to look forward to mid-week when I can recover from the busy weekends!
A very Happy Easter to you all!
