I'm actually ahead of the game for this block, aren't you proud, lol??? I will also stitch a 2nd block for the same person, as the stitcher ahead of me hasn't the time. I'm being her "stitch angel", as I understand she is behind getting other packets out too.
MY QUESTION FOR YOU: Do I keep the bee's nest in the upper right corner? It looks rather childish, maybe I should take the bee trails off the bees? Otherwise, I think I will add a few tiny lazy-daisy flowers beneath the hive. This set of blocks will surround a centerpiece of a cottage in a flower garden setting. (This is the WET section of the garden, lol). I am thinking of adding some cat-o-nine tails, as I have a segmented frog charm to add in the (off)center section.
No holiday shopping to do, and I withdrew from our gift exchange and cookie exchange this year...I am trying to simplify. I enjoy the work exchanges, but this overtime and system conversion has left me with a bit of an ulcer. Just am learning to listen to my body, since I always stretch my limitations this time of year. With last year's overtime I came down with shingles. Gotta listen!!
Have a fabulous week!
