Finshed hospital block.
Well it is finished and about to wing its way to America. I realy don't know why the lovely purples come out blue in my photographs. There must be away to fix it but I don't know what it is.
I have really enjoyed working on this block and am sort of pleased with it but!!!!!! There is always a but!. isn't there? So I won't be negative. My friends on the group say it is nice, all that remains is for me to believe them and be happy with it.
The academic year has started and with it my library studies which I am enjoying greatly. It is taking a lot of time being that I am a slow learner or rather have not been doing any serious study for a very long time. It is worth it though and I am pleased that the year has started.
Now that my block is finished it is time to get back to Tast and those Ufo's.

A bit more progress on my hospital block. Allie is posting pictures of all the blocks on her blog. I haven't bookmarked her new address as yet.
Why is it that I can see my work clearer in a photograph? Looking at this photo, I can see what still needs to be done, spaces to fill out or even up. But it is more difficult, for me anyway, to look at the block and see what needs to be done.

Chevron square, I like the square sampler that Sharon did as she was experimenting, so I wanted to give it a go.
Playing about .
Take 2
Mmmmm, still not sure if I like it?
Block in progress.
Looking at photographs of my work helps me to see it more clearly, and I am not sure if I like the threaded herringbone. Might have to sleep on this one!!
Threaded herringbone.
Just wanted to have a play with this and see what it looked like as I want to try it on my "hospital block"
It is OK - not too sure!!!

Chevron stitch.
I am so enjoying "take a stitch Tuesday" as it is making me stitch and play. This week it is chevron and that tends to be a stitch that I don't usually do; not because I don't like it or anything like that. It is because I can never remember how to do it. The beauty of paticipating in a challange is that you have to practise and that is what I am liking about this. Its fun!!!! and I feel like I am achieving something at the same time.
Thanks Sharon.
