But, I also finished up this VERY late Bee Block for Vicky. She is doing a whole quilt of bookshelf blocks. So cool! She asked us to embroider (brave woman) and here's what I produced:
She had asked us our favourite books in a variety of categories, and is making blocks in each of the various categories (children's books, cook books, etc.). My block was cookbooks - she asked us to include the initials of the person who suggested the book, along with its title.
The green thread doesn't show up well in these photos, but I assure you, it looks nice. Here's a closer view:
The carrot wasn't done by me (obv. - look how awesome it is!).
So happy to have that one done because I was feeling terrible about how late it was. And now that the Canada Post strike isn't looming, I'm going to be brave and send out my bee blocks.
Oh, I love it, Felicity!!! Especially the "Joy" of cooking part, it looks awesome :)ReplyDelete
