All the round robins I have been in so far this year have come full circle. On the first day of September a new one will begin. Yesterday I constructed the block I will send around the country for other stitchers to embellish. There are five of us in this group. Only one of the stitchers has been in a round robin with me in the past. It will be fun to see each lady’s work up close and personal…I learn so much from other people’s work.
Our theme is Kate Greenway, an English artist and illustrator of children’s books. She lived in the 19th century and died in 1901. The picture I chose reminds me of spring…of May Day. My printer was very low on cyan so it did not print true to color, but I liked the pink product and went with it. It gave my block a Victorian look and seemed appropriate for the theme.
This picture is not particularly true to color either…
Close-up of the silkie I used as an anchor piece. I usually use a 5-sided anchor but could not make that method work with this picture.
Hopefully the mailman will deliver a block for me to work on next week. I’ve missed my round robins. They are pretty habit-forming.
Soon I will make another post to share two crazy quilt hearts I received this past week…I love them both. Sadly the heart I made and mailed to Angie on the 19th of this month still has not made it to her house. It looks like I will be making a new one for her to replace the lost one. :( I broke my own “rule” of always getting a tracking number before mailing something I worked hard, and to avoid a trip to town I mailed it from home. Never again. I’ve learned my lesson well.
I do hope the heart has just dilly-dallied around and will still find Angie’s house, but it is seeming pretty unlikely.
Until next time…
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. (Hosea 4:6)
