Class Block Progress

Here is the current state of my class block.

Block10

There is a large one HERE.

The buttons are now loosely attached, and waiting for decorative stitches and beads.

There is some modified Chicken Scratch in pink across the blue at top left.

I have been working on the lace above the woman’s head – but there is more to come.

And the scissors are just tacked on. The sewing machine with charms at top right is a broach I was considering, but something else has happened since that makes that placement difficult. It may actually go much higher, and across the boundaries of the block, once it is sashed. Blocks make a good place to store broaches when they are not in use – so it can be added at the last minute.

What else is new???? I think that might be it. No – I have been playing with trying to extend the circles of the hairpin lace doiley. Have a few ideas for the doiley – I seem to work on a section at a time, and it isn’t time to work on that yet.

And this is only the centre section that fits on the scanner with a large, cumbersome tapestry hoop sewn to it top and bottom. But there isn’t much missing.

The scanner definitely does provide much clearer pictures.

My present quandary is that there is so much more I want to add. And there is no room – and this is a 12 inch block! Last lesson comes out later this week – there is no way I am going to have this block finished when classes finish – but that was never the aim or expectation anyway.

Linda, this may be a big ask, but...when you finish your block, will you please send it to me! Not to keep.I just want to hold it and look at it.

Oh. Gosh. I am overcome.

I don't think there is a greater compliment that anyone could be paid.

Thank you, Jo.
