Nature's Journey Emerging from Hiatus...

Maybe it is the onset of Spring, all the lovely centres being shown on the Stitch-A-Long blog or just that taking a break from the project was enough to want to bring it back into the light, but for whatever reason Nature's Journey has emerged from hiatus this week...with two small and four large make-up blocks to complete before moving on to the centre, this week's result is...
The two small blocks replace the embroidered initial and year...the two large blocks replace the patched circle lower "corners", a second hexie flower and a second star - almost there, I got very bored with the chain stitch circle on the star Thursday night and just couldn't keep at it so it is waiting for me this week...the other two large replacements blocks are prepared, they replace the spikey flower shapes I didn't like...that will bring me up to the centre...I need to bring the box of patches back home when they are all done to pin up for centre applique fabric choices and to machine construct the background, so that will take as long as it takes...

Happy Stitching...
