|Little stars - background is the back of Catherine's Garden|
That's OK, plenty of machine sewing coming up, and it is all my choice.
The little stars don't have backgrounds.. yet. I'm leaning towards a solid cream, but have considered a small print. They need a little trimming first.
They finish at three inches.

Salley Morse is getting close to a finish. A few focused minutes a day is all it is taking ... and it sat for 20 years...
I put it away in 1992 - during a move, and with two preschoolers. Sweet as those days were, hand stitching was low on the priority list. When I restarted it I realized I had reversed the green and rust - and it is staying that way!
This weekend I spotted and old frame at the local antique shop I think might work. I need to get back over there before it is gone. Optimistic for a real finish - FINISHED as in stitched and framed.

This is the reticule/thread keep progress.
This is a long term project. After all of the stitching is done I have quite a bit of assembly.
I have been rotating my projects throughout the day - a little housework, piecing, quilting, stitching...it's better on the wrists to keep a variety of projects going.
Every little bit of progress feels good!
|bulb, pebbles & water - so simple|
Last but not least - our Amaryllis - this year grew to an epic height.
It is just under 3 feet tall.
We grew it on pebbles and water.
The height of the hurricane vase kept it from tipping - an added bonus.
Back to quilting...
Should the stars be finished in solid or print? A little of both?
Let me know what you think.
Have a great weekend! Dawn
