Block 9 is done!
The last post for June is very exciting! I completed Block 9 yesterday, among other things...(the cleaning crew didnt come again over the weekend, so I had to do the work myself LOL!) I didnt know what to expect when stitching this block, looking at the picture, and looking at the pattern, it is always a nice surprise. The 3-d effect is terrific with the minimal backstitching. You can almost hear the horses walking down the street, past the refreshing fountain!
Today, I thought I would start block 12, but might 'block out' 10, 11 & 12, so that I can just stitch inside. That would be an easy thing to complete for sure. It is nice to see that all 12 will fit on the fabric too, not that I doubted that it would, (a few gals I showed my WIP asked, are you sure???!!!) but at this point, it wouldnt matter much; I would be LIVID though if it didnt! Yes, the correct size linen is the whole battle!
I was on target to get this piece done this month, but as you can see, that is far from happening! There is always next month. Stay tuned!!!
