Photos taken

I put the last border on to finish the block and a photo to show. It may hang on the wall for a while, until I get some of my current projects finished but I would like to make some more blocks and I have plenty of Reproduction 'brights' to keep going.
 
 
 The next photo is the Christmas stitchery I have just finished. I still have to make up my mind whether to frame it or make something with it.


 
and last, my Coxcombs and Stars blocks and border. I'm working on the left border at the moment as it was in the bundle with the 2nd block. At least when I get the 4th block sewn there will only be one border to go. I have never had a pattern before where the blocks aren't finished first before the borders are started.

 
Today is a beautiful sunny, warm day. The washing is done, out on the line and dry. The garden is looking good, with the roses, daisies and sweetpea all in flower and it's a great place to sit and sew.

Fantastic Dorothy! I know a few others who are making the whole quilt of Faithful so you will be in good company. I LOVE your single block and the fabrics you used.
The stitchery is great, esp Santa' s hat!!
Your applique blocks are phenomenal, as usual.

I see you participated in Lori's sew-along. I just didn't have time. Your fabric choices....very good. More, more!
The stitchery will be a perfect addition to holiday decorating. But the Coxcomb piece is my favorite!
