The camera did something funny on the background of this one......the background is more like the second block..........this is what I have been working on. My plan is to show a few each day, and then maybe by the time you've seen all of the appliqued blocks, the border will be completed.
I have used Valdoni thread to whip stitch the grass sections down.....rather long and uneven stitches to represent grass. I thought I'd try something different, and I think I like it.
These photo's were taken by Katrina's husband. He is a photographer who travels far and wide taking photographs. He just returned from California where he shot photo's of a basketball star for a deodorant commercial. He's also photographed Warren Buffet so his subject matter is quite versatile.
My husband is home with me today....we are having a long week-end. He is home because of Martin Luther King's birthday. It is always good to reflect on how far we've come as a country with civil rights, and to realize we still have a way to go......!

I'm certain that their are many hoping for a better tomorrow. I always want to live so that I may be part of the solution.
