Do you ever get the urge to be different for the sake of being different? Me neither. I was just born that way. :) There is a popular me-me amongst blogs featuring Wednesday Works In Progress. I don’t participate, but I do have works in progress on Thursday. Today I am sharing two.
The first I will not describe too fully, because it is for a swap, and I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Being evasive might even add to the intrigue. The block is made of decorator silks with some pretty cotton laces added for interest. I think I will keep the stitching fairly simple. Too much would very likely detract from the elegance of the materials.
The second piece I am working on is the one-on-one block I am swapping with Pam. I am contemplating removing the blue lace and replacing it with a different blue lace, but I’ve not made up my mind. Brights are a challenge for me, because I am not especially drawn to them. Working with this block is a very good exercise in stretching my creative wings. Don’t get me wrong. I love the block…I’ve just never been particularly comfortable with brights. I don’t wear them and rarely work with them.
That’s all the “show and tell” I have for the day, but I do have a burden on my heart for our country…for this world. If you watch the news, you probably have one, too. The verse I chose for today is really good news and a promise to hold fast to.
Until next time…
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure. (2 Timothy 2:19)
