Here's the Dark Tower block -- background all stitched down. The Tower pieces are just laying on there, not sewn down yet but this is the position. The color isn't that great in this pic, there's more gradiation in the sunset pieces. Still not like the picture I had in my head, but I will add to it with thread, fabric paint and hopefully will pull it all together.
Note to self: if you are using black fabric, keep the white cat out of the room (LOL). Maddie likes to help with the projects -- help like jumping on the table sliding everything around, laying on anything black, and her best help, pulling the pins out of the pincushion (with her mouth) and dropping them on the floor. Must be a real fun game because she plays it all the time.
This will probably be my last post until the New Year. With all my nieces and nephews and various family events, my Christmas madness will start on Sunday, again on Monday night (Christmas Eve) and then two places on Tuesday (Christmas Day) -- all in all, a HUGE holiday blow out! I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. May 2008 be more peaceful, less stressful and more prosperous for all of us!
