One more block finished thanks to Bonnie's challenge to sew One hour a day.  I didn't work on it at all this weekend but just last night was able to put in the last few stitches to get this one done.

Here's the next block I'll be working on now.  This is the last block to embroidery and then I can start setting them together.  Now I'm going to have to get serious about the color I will use for the rest of it. 
Of course black would be the most obvious color but a solid is not what I'm after.  I'll be looking for something with a bit of texture and marbling.  Perhaps a lightly patterned gold on black might be pretty. 
But that's what I'm using for my Carol Doak BOM so that idea is out. 
Looks like a shopping trip is in order.  lol 
Thanks for stopping by....Linda


  1. LOVE your blocks!! For the rest of it - check out Connecting Threads - their "Mirage" collection of "basics" might be what you are looking for - ;)) And there is no "rule" that you can't use the same thing as your Carol Doak BOM - or is there?? - ;))

  2. I love your embroidered baskets. They are so pretty. And an excuse for a shopping trip is ALWAYS a good thing. LOL
