I was wondering how long it would take for someone to notice and comment on the fact that for someone who disdains piecing, I seem to have posted a lot of it recently. It's a lot like doing the laundry and washing the dishes...just because I don't like it, doesn't mean that I'm not good at it.
I'm actually making good progress on the Joseph's Coat. I'm 2 petals away from having the uncompleted full blocks finished. And I have 3 of the 1/2 blocks to go. Rows 3 & 4 are stitched together and 5 started.
While on the back of the Harley Sunday, I worked out why it was that I hadn't finished my Baltimore Album style, National Park block that I designed about 5 years ago. I bogged down on the Lupines. I was thinking that it was because of the little pieces that I designed for the flowers. But I didn't like the way that the petals looked. Sunday I realized the solution, and cut away all of them on the Right side. If I like how the repaired ones turn out, I'll fix that one on the left. I also figured out a 3-d version of the lupine flowers. I'll tell you how, if the plan actually works. This block is my Grand Teton National Park block. The flowers (left to right): Lupine, Wild Geranium, Indian Paintbrush, Arrow Leaf Balsam Root, Huckleberries (the leaves are there, berries go on last), then more paintbrush and lupine.
