Odds and ends

It's a new month!         Happy Canada Day late for those up north, a little late. 
Happy 4th of July for the Yanks!

I made my Stash Bee blocks:  They are string blocks using muslin foundation.  The hard part was selecting the strings. I sorted my scrap bags. I really don't have a lot of strings and was unsure what colorways to choose. But they are done.

Then I started my Rainbow Scrap Challenge Blue blocks.  I know; one of them looks more gray than blue. But it is a good start. 

But mostly I am glad to post this start on the 2nd panel of " Over the River and Through the Woods by Crabapple Hill .  Yeah! The first one is done. But this one has a whole lot more lines to follow. 
It has been a year since I cut the panels and traced them, followed by hand basting them together.

Oh, and here are my dear daughter and husband from our day Sunday. We did trivia at a bar which was fun, and then walked the lakefront of Milwaukee.

I love the water and the reflections of light. It was kind of a cloud-ish day. 

And I loved this flower that looks like little white spiders in clumps. So delicate and beautiful!


  1. Your handwork is so pretty! That one will be a stunner! So glad you had a great time with family! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Lovely photos and pretty blocks. Your embroidery looks beautiful. It will look like a painting, I think.


  3. All of your blocks are so nice. Your embroidery is going to be beautiful. Glad you had a fun day with your family.
