Block 5 complete, scrolling on........

My progression........at first.........

then




to here




and finally here tonight...............

I'm sure you've heard of Thomas Kinkade, the famous artist and how his paintings just light up in a gallery. Well, this block didn't light up for me until I added the Antique White around the windows and door and it just popped.
I'm fixing to scroll and rewind my frame down to start Old Glory. Every time I see that phrase the hymn comes to mind, The Battle Hymn of the Republic.........My Eyes have seen the Glory of the coming of the Lord......Glory, glory......The truth is marching on............

  2. I love seeing the progression on your piece! I did watch the special the other evening. It was intense and a good reminder of how fortunate we are. It also made me hug my three boys a bit tighter before they went out to play army men with their friends. In my mind I kept saying - not when you are older.....

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I do believe the piece block is my favorite so far!

  4. OOOPS! How silly of me! I just realized that I spelled Peace as piece in my previous post -- boy do I feel silly! I'll blame it on the cool, damp, rainy, windy day........

  5. Speaking of "marching on", you are sure marching right through this piece. Thank you for being my support (even if you didn't know it) as I stitch this piece too. I hope to post some pictures of mine soon.

  7. Hey Gabi, thanks so much. I'm stitching on 30 ct Creekbed Brown which is a pretty color but very stiff fabric.
    I really do love it with the thread colors.
