And as if....I needed another project, after noticing quite a bit of embroidery going on around the blogs I visit, I decided to stitch up some lighthouse blocks. Hoping to coordinate with some of the ocean colored blocks I requested from my Block Swap Adventure partners.
Here is a rough draft (emphasis on "rough") of what I'll be doing. I have to practice my embroidery as I am quite rusty! For this practice swatch I quickly traced one of the patterns onto a scrap of muslin and dove in.
Now I am ready for the real deal. And better yet, I got my mom involved. She does awesome, meticulous embroidery and I'm excited to see how her lighthouses turn out too.
And finally, I will start cutting into this ....
to begin my next gift quilt...I found the perfect pattern this morning!!
