I've been a busy bee...while my mom was in the hospital with knee surgery I had time on my hands to do some stitching...so this is what I have done so far. I did the bee because we have several living on our fruit trees pollinating them...
I found that I liked doing my squares according to theme...part of the blocks are more food and kitchen blessing oriented...while others are flowers, garden, garden tool oriented.
But I'm working on squares now~that are family and kid focused...no real plan...I just stitch as I get ideas!
I've also made a list of the most predominant things I feel blessed for and then go from there. Sometimes I look at a stitch pattern, or look at a button and freehand the design, the outline first is stitched and then I stitch the inside...it seems a little easier that way. But I'm now in love with french knots because of our stitching friend Alison over at http://needleandthreadadventures.blogspot.com/
YOu've got to visit her...she does amazing things all with french knots....I ooh and aaaah...so will you!
Blessings to you!
