Barbara's August CQJP and Sheaf Stitch
One more block in this project is done, four to go. This one felt like it didn't require as much stitching as the others, probably because of the machine embroidered patch.
Here's a close view of the top portion of the block,
...and here's my Sheaf Stitch, this week's TAST, in blue pearl cotton, at the bottom.
I added some French knots to the patch with the seagull to infuse a bit more blue into this corner.
Louie doesn't quite fit into the sewing room cat bed, but like Cinderella's stepsisters faced with the glass slipper, he tries.
I had a poem in the August issue of the on-line journal The Accentos Review. And this is a three-day weekend. Life is good.
