I'm still on block 4, but I have completed the leaves on the inside of the block, along with all the thorns.
Now I'm moving along with the flowers. I think the hardest part is picking out the fabrics. That took a lot of time. Then I cut my Floriani and ironed them to my fabrics. Here you can see this happening. I am keeping the flowers separate in bags and all the pieces are well labeled so it isn't hard to put them together.
And now I have 2 flowers done. I only work on these blocks about one afternoon a week. It is a slow, but steady progress.
Here is Eloise sitting on Grandpa's shoulder. What is she looking at?
Ah yes. There go Dad and Mom ready to ride the water.
