Time Away and A Finished Project!

Had a great little mini vacation with my husband in Central Oregon. Jim really enjoyed his fishing! I enjoyed some time alone and got a project finished. I bought a set of Sunbonnet Sue large quilt blocks awhile back but one was never completed. I  have been hoping to do the embroidery work on it so I would have the six blocks. They are all so cute and it will be a fun quilt to finish up.

So here's what I had to start with...

Progressing with the blanket stitch....

Details added.... and she's done. I think she'll blend in with the others and hopefully no one will know the difference. I still need to add centers to some of the daisies, remove the markings, square up the blocks and press them well. I think a fun multicolored repro 1940's print will be fun to add for sashings and a border to tie it all together. They just make me happy when I look at the blocks and I had to rescue them-right?

I'm sorry to miss Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday this week. We didn't get home until this afternoon and it was too late to post. I'll be back next week!
