Finally I have some Bird of Paradise blocks to post. I have had this block appliqued for a few weeks. I wanted to embroider the skipping rope before I posted it because the space looked so empty without it. A friend came over Friday afternoon and provided the encouragement needed to get started. Nearly all of these Bird of Paradise blocks need a bit of embroidery so it was good to make a start. This block portrays DD#2 and DD#3. I found enough pinks in my stash so they could both have pink dresses without matching :0)
So now I have only 3 blocks left to complete and then on to the border. If you can believe it - I don't have enough background fabric for the borders so the hunt is on to find something similar. I have only myself to blame. I was so eager to get started on this project and I thought I had a big enough piece. I didn't measure it to be sure. I won't be making that mistake again!
