First one Done

After much looking in fabric shops for just the right fabric for my Willowberry, Verandah Views blocks, I have finally finished the #1 stitchery. I had an idea of a muted, small polka dot and found what I wanted at a local quilt shop. This picture doesn't really do the color justice. It is a soft muted yellow with white dots. I have gotten the impression from other blogs that taking pictures outside really make a difference in quality and color of our projects. Hopefully sun and warmth will come to NE Ohio soon.

Yes.. this is true abou the light for photography. Even if you can use window light, it's better than the middle of a room. I do think spring is just around the corner for us though.. I hope!
