I trace the pattern on the back for back basting. In this picture I have tacked the pink flowers onto the background.
This is a shot of the outline of the flower from the front.
A shot of the front after trimming it down for hand stitching. Sophie is my companion in the recliner. She gets the area that lifts up.
A finished block.
Happy St. Patricks Day! Time to put the corned beef and veggies into the crock pot for dinner tonight. I cook the cabbage on the stove using some of the broth from the crock pot closer to dinner time. We have a dinosaur play this evening - Emily's Kindergarten class is preforming tonight. Another late night for the kids ... I hope they are not as cranky tomorrow morning as they were this morning.
