Another bit of white

This is the latest block I have completed for my white cloth.  I've left the bottom right corner empty because I plan to have an embellishment flow over onto it from the adjoining piece. 


Above is the view outside my studio window.  The tree in the foreground is currently home to a nest of crows - unfortunately we can't see into the nest because it's almost at the very top of the tree.  I don't think you can tell from the picture but the trees beside the river are just starting to show the leaves coming out.

you seem to be busy, any chance of you coming in to TO these days, for tea, perhaps?

Hi Maggie

I just love this block with the fabric ruching out from the belt buckle and the french knots placed in there. Just beautiful.

I am at the point where I am trying to get my 4 large blocks put together for a hanging (not mine). This is mainly from the first course with just a few bits from the second. I am going to make a book of small samples from the second course. I am hooked and I know you are too.

The pic out your window is lovely.
A very nice spot winter or summer.

Hugs

I so enjoy all of your white work...it's elegant and textured and really draws me in to look more closely

How nice that Spring is popping in your neck of the woods...I bet those crows can be noisey...I find them very entertaining

We are enjoying the Dogwood trees, Wisteria and Lily of the Valley just now

Happy Spring!
