I'm Done!

I finished Block #1 on my new Berry Picking Block of the Month. Michelle, Robin and Liz are also doing this and we are enjoying the stitching on it. We tried dragging Vickie S into it but she very politely told us to get lost...she wasn't joining another one even though she was lusting over Liz's pile of floss. Vickie just LOVES floss! Said she's got an obsession or something for it LOL.

So, as I was saying, I finished my block. It took 2 weeks from the day it came to attaching the border fabrics. There's a lot of embroidery on it and since it's done on a gorgeous white on white, you have to wash your hands any time you walk away and come back to it. And yes, when you prick your finger, a warning is to put a darn band aid on it, don't just think you've stopped the blood....ask me how I know this.
It is not an easy block to photograph, I think the light pastels and the shiny tone on tones do something to the picture.
It is gorgeous though and I'm anxiously awaiting the next block to get here.

Anything shiny is hard to photograph (so I've also found with beads), but your sashing fabrics are the perfect complement to your block. Those are *very* fine little stitches -- beautiful!
