I’m doing a day of cleaning and organizing my sewing-hooking room today as I moved all my supplies in and then started organizing! However, I had the rest of the apartment to do so I stopped and worked on everything else!!!! 🙂
But last evening, I did complete this bird block and it is vey close to the block on the CWB quilt…you at least can recognize it as an adaptation of the original block! The embroidered “Joy” is because my husband loved birds and was very knowledgeable about them! We fed the birds through the long Vermont winters and went through hundreds of pounds of birdseed!!!! I learned so much from Joe and enjoyed birds more than I ever had before.
Here is the block:
Close up of the embroidery and the butterfly outline. My Mom and my Grandmother made larger butterfly quilts (with the dark buttonhole stitch around the wings) and I remember them with joy also!!! 🙂
And, since I am using a bit of red in all blocks no matter what the other colours are…I put the red in this one as a Bug!!! (like a ladybug, kinda!!!) LOL
Now it is off to the cleaning and sorting…and trying to adapt curtains from my Vermont house to my apartment..!!!! Of course, none of the windows even remotely resemble my Vermont ones!!!!!
I will listen to Abraham Lincoln today…”A goal properly set is halfway reached”. Hmmm…sitting here at the computer and setting my goal of making order out of chaos might qualify for halfway reached. But I often find that my “organizing”, “cleaning” and “sorting” gets me in a bigger mess than I had before!!!!!!!!! LOL
Of course, none of you have that problem! Happy Thursday! Sunnie 🙂
