Thank you to everyone who commented on my first two blocks, I was so surprised to receive such lovely comments and encouragement! I feel more reassured in regard to my choice of colour palette and fabrics now. Here's my third block! I won't be starting another block for a week or two because we are going away day after tomorrow (Fiji for a work - someone has to do it!). I will finish the stitching on this block before we go though (the first two are now totally finished). Spent all of last weekend planting 200 Truffle trees (English Oak), so it was nice to sit and work on this block and have a little rest. I think that my next block will either be the bird of paradise block or the peacocks. I am also thinking of excluding, perhaps, the elephant block (?) and drafting a new block to include my Oak trees, truffles and our two beautiful Maremma's, Bear and Giorgio. I also would like to include a block with a Willow tree and something else to symbolise our home and family. Just wondering if there is a traditional symbol to represent children? Love Willowmere Karen.
