Completed block five of a six block series.
Since taking the picture, I have repositioned the fabric in the Q-snap frame, put in a few stitches in block six with a new goal of having block six done by the end of the month. Will mount, lace and do my own framing. Saw a frame molding I liked in a shop in Waverly, Iowa when I was in there a while back getting some threads for my Dutch Treat Designs project. Will make a visit and order a frame when I have all the stitching done.
I liked this block. Was a gentle reminder to me that I am blessed and a child of God. God is good. Very. Good.

Have been thinking of doing blue gingham curtains and walls. As in sewn panels, hung by PVC, putting that behind my tables and equipment for color. That might be an expensive project, so am "thinking" on that one for awhile. I rent this house. I cannot do alot, but I am thankful my landlord has allowed me to do what I have so far - putting up shop lights, hanging pegboards, moving out bulky furniture (couch, chair and end tables). Would like to have an area with a comfortable wingback chair where I could stitch using a floor frame. Don't have the space in my living room for that. Course, I could look at other rentals for more rooms on the main level and move again to which when I have those kinds of thoughts, they don't stay long. The physical end of moving and packing for me is not something I want to do. Nope. I'm old. This place has become my nest. I'm home.
For a smile...
Leah enjoying the outdoors. I love this cat. She's burrowed into my heart. We work well together.
I did order her a longer 66ft foot leash so she can walk around in more space.
