TBCQ block #4

 I haven't had much time for stitching this week. This working business is a real hinderance to creating. I have Mondays fairly free, and I did nothing but olympics and stitch. Isn't that Cross skiing a blast!
Here are the results.











This was supposed to be the orange and green block, and I even put the orange ribbon aside during the day for the flowers...however, I forgot, and just took a stab at it when it came to stitching time, so, we have pink flowers, and orange butterflies





I have a meeting this weekend, so hopefully I will find some time to work on the black and gray blocks. I am off to Invercargill, which I am a bit excited about, and kiwi readers will probably wonder why!! It is at the very bottom of our little country and I am not sure that much happens there, but I have never been, and am not likely to go again, so I am looking forward to it. We even have a few hours when we get there, and may get to see more than the conference centre!

Oh Jo, I've been to Invercargill years ago!!!! I even spoke to a garden club there. We had a lovely time and they are keen gardeners. The only down thing was we were hosted by a couple who, when it was feeding time for their little terrier, just threw the food on the garage floor..no bowl... AND I am beading thistles now...great minds think alike yada yada Love the little black beads on the butterflies...inspired... Gerry K.
