Work In Progress Wednesday

Hello there.

Today is Wed and I am posting the progress made on Block 5.  It isn't much because I am having a rather difficult time trying to figure my way around this blog process, but I did do a bit of stitching.  Here is today's view.

This is where I added one of the motifs from the Adventure.  In the bottom, right corner you will see a beautiful motif made by Nicki Lee Ravioll.  If you haven't seen her work, I believe she sells on Etsy.  This is a stack of various dyed laces with a bird and some pearls at the top of the motif.  This made me think of "The 12 Days of Christmas" (a partridge in a pear tree?) so I thought that would be a good theme for this block and I embroidered the words in the middle.  I am left handed so I work from right to left (some say backwards) and you might have noticed the 'Christmas'  in the previous view of the block. 

As I said, I am still trying to figure out this bloggings stuff so I didn't get much done this week but I have high hopes for next week.  It is supposed to be very, very hot here this week so Cobi (my grand-dog) and I might just sit in the air-conditioned room and stitch.



  1. This will be a lovely treeskirt! Great idea to use CQ for it.

  2. Hi Maureen! Welcome to blog land! I love what you've done to the tree skirt - all of your stiching is wonderful! WOW what a surprise to come here and see that you received one fo the motifs that we swapped out at the CQ Adventure. Wasn't that just the best time ever!!

    Looking forward to keeping up with you on your blogging - it is so much fun.
