Sendai # 2 - Bare Block

I did get the block scanned this morning for you to see.  I think you can grasp more clearly why I'm partial to the pattern piecing method.  I was able to put the one beautiful butterfly smack-dab centre on the first piece ... one large leaf on the top left corner & at the bottom right a different scene from the same fabric that was the centre on the first block.

The fabric in the centre was from one of those ties I scored a couple years back at Goodwill.  It has brighter threads through it that don't show very well here ... blue, pink & gold ... which I used for other patches of the block.

Enough talk ... time to rock!

Thanks Gwen! If you can believe it ... this is the first stitching I've done in a looonnngggg time ... as those darned beads had me in their spell for the longest time.

I was pleased with the finished first one ... then immediately proceeded to the second as momentum was underway ... not to mention there were other colours & components that I wanted to use that just didn't go with the first.

So far the second is coming along as I'd hoped ... stitched for quite a whle today ... even took it to my Blood donation appointment ... to get more done. Got into quite a conversation with a fellow donor about stitching.
