Silent Wednesday

 On the Wednesday before his death, Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the Leper. As they sat at the supper table, a woman named Mary anointed Jesus' head and feet with costly oil of spikenard.

Applique Tuesday

This is the Tuesday of Holy Week  which started  with Palm Sunday.  I will not be on the NET much for the next 7 days as we gather each day to commemorate the Passion of our Lord.

Today I spent a bit of time prepping the buds for my Benjamin Briggs block.  Just have to finish one more piece and I'll be ready to fuse the block.

Back to mediating on the Scripture passages before Holy Thursday.

Sunday Slow Stitching

Things are a bit better this week - a more quiet week.  I went ahead and made another center for my Rosette - here are the two:
The new one has the same burnt orange and gold as in row 2. Also the spot of teal.


The old one.
What do you think?  The new one is just laying on top of the rosette right now.

I finished the foundation row and am on to the half double crochet row.  This is going fast. If you'd like to do this easy project, go here.
I'm linking to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. Meet you there.

WIPs Be Gone Week 13

A strange week - think depression is getting to me. Not very productive. The two below are not going on my WIP list because I have a long way to go with them. As to the list, I"m auditioning various fabrics for the floater border between the Bird of Paradise background and the last border.  I finished prepping  the main part of BBWQ Block 5. I think I mislead a few of you when you looked at the block in the Applique Tuesday post.  Only the inner border and about 1/8th of the outer seams were turned over the freezer paper.
It is now fully prepped. Just have to make the four buds that go in the corner and I can set it on the background 16" square of muslin.  As for #1, I tweaked the pattern on this one, also.  Just seemed too heavy for me as it was given.

I also worked on part one of the Katja's QAL Rosette #1. I'm not happy with this, but I'm going to go with my choices and see how it develops:
In day light the center does not stand out so much.  I think I'll incorporate some teal, and maybe some pink, in the next round. I'll see. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.  I just may make a yellow center and try again - sigh. Color combos are hard for me.

How are you doing on your wips?Would love to see - doesn't have to be a finish, but we'll admire those, too.  Linky below - remember it doesn't have to be a new post, just one that shows a WIP.  Ends Monday, midnight.  I'm linking to Sarah's Can I get a Whoop, Whoop? and Kelly's Needle and Thread ThursdaysLots of eye candy there.
