and here is a picture of what Patchwork Bears will look like when completed. I liked the colors and the fact that there is patchwork in it, as I am into Quilts, and have tried my hand at Quilting, and have a stash of nice fabrics that I will one day turn into quilts, I hope, I really thought this piece would be inspiring.
And this is my progress on it, I am not sure how many hours on yet.
I haven't gotten very far, and I obviously have no synchrinized plan on how I am stitching this. Many people would work the whole patchwork border, and then work the bears, or Visa versa, but not me! I have just sorta been going along working on whatever I feel like, the bear...the Balloons...the border...It's all gotta be stitched right? I think I started working on the Bears because they were closest to the center, and then I got sick of working with the browns, and moved up into the balloons, and then decided to work on some of the pretty colors in the border, and here it is. But this is definitely one of those pieces that will be brought to life with the backstitching!
So, there we are, finally progress pictures, and I am hoping that I won't wait so long to show more progress pictures. As I read other blogs, it's the pictures that really make the blog exciting, and here I go for days without any pictures. I have wanted to, thought about it, and then turned off the computer, but this time i had to do it.
And I have one other small thing to say................................................
