16 mini 4" scrappy blocks are finished. Next step is the 7 center blocks which will be stem stitched embroidered leaves. After measuring - my original plan wouldn't fit on the dresser top, but this idea did and I think it looks even better than what I was first planning.
I've been working on other things, here and there too, but no photos yet.
And - you might remember that sometime over the summer I was sewing fun pictures on to 2 flannels to make Little Boy a blanket. He had picked out this mauve 4" blanket binding at Marden's (I think it was about 20 cents a yard?) but the entire project came to a stop when I realized I didn't have this particular color thread. Well, this week I got the great idea to just use thread that I do have - blue and green threads to match the flannel fabrics and sew it all down using a decorative stitch on my machine. I think it came out pretty good (not perfect, but that 4" slippery blanket binding stuff is tricky!) and will use this idea again for kids quilts/blankets.
