Cuz....*drum roll*...I have a finish! First one of the year, isn't that sad. But I do like it.
Haven't named it yet, haven't drawn a pattern yet, but I'm glad it's done. I love it.
See those clouds? I tried and tried to find a mostly white with black fabric that I liked for the background for the poppy, and couldn't. So I made my own. I drew them on and embroidered them with one strand of black floss. Love the effect, but it would have been faster to find fabric I liked. *G* And the binding fabric wasn't that dark - I got it all put on, decided it blended into the border too much, so colored it with a black fabric marker. All because I'm lazy, and didn't want to do a new binding! Necessity really is the mother of invention.
I'd love to make it with Japanese prints, too, and I also want to make a bigger one with more blocks and some liberated, asymmetrical borders. We'll see.
Now I'm relaxing with Lucy, and reading blogs. Feels SO GOOD to have a finish!
You may notice a new linky follower on my sidebar, apparently Google has decided if it ain't broke, they have to fix it and will be canceling Google Friend Connect. At the end of the month! A few folks have started using Linky Follower so I thought I would try it too. Any blogs I follow using google, I'll be looking to see if they have this, so I can follow using linky follower as well - don't want to lose anyone during the transition! Darn google anyway.
My oldest son, John, got into a car accident yesterday, he's ok but his car is not. It's still drive-able, but he'll probably use my car tomorrow. First he hit a deer, and now this. That poor car of his used to be so pretty! I'm just so thankful he's ok.
Billie from BillieBee's Blog gave me the Versatile Blogger award, thank you so much Billie, but since I already did that post I'm not going to do it again - she's a great blogger and a great friend, go say hi!
Nothing else new here, I may be a bit quiet this week, I'm going to make a supreme effort to find a job. If anyone has any leads, let me know! I hope you all have a wonderful week!
