TENTH SQUARE






Here is block #10. I believe I showed it earlier but will show it again for the ones who did not see it.

Lazy day today. I went out to Michaels and Marshalls. Found a nice black fitted cardigan for those cold days in Florida and a nice belt to wear over it or with other tops. At Michaels picked up just 2 small things I needed. Nothing special. Came home and worked on the beaded front of the purse,. Seems like this will never be finished and my island top will be covered forever. Thank goodness this kind of stuff doesn't bother Harv. His office and big screen tv are in our loft upstairs so he just heads up there. I really am hoping a couple more days of stitching and I should be able to see my head above water.

Your work is really beautiful! I have a wallhanging to finish over the next couple of weeks and then I hope to start embellishing a mini crazy quilt I started months ago at a workshop.

Love the purple lace and the dragonfly. This is going to be a real stunner.

To me, who has been away most of the Summer, it seems like you are zipping along. The shades of purples and grays are quite majestic. And I love the beaded seam treatment on block 9. Stay well, xo Susan
