Here are my six “naked” blocks. I chose to print out vintage images on silk of Victorian women in different activities; reading, sewing, playing the piano, etc. The silk prints are just pinned on, because each stitcher will determine where on the block to place it. In most cases, the antique lace has not been sewn on either, and the stitchers can also determine where to put that.
The blocks are intended to be very low-color as they will be made into a small wall hanging in our neutral toned bedroom.

I thought I had taken pictures of my CQ Journal Project block for July and posted it, but I could not even find any pictures on my computer. I guess that is for the next post.
Tomorrow we are having a birthday party for DGD London, who will be three on Friday. But because of scheduling conflicts, the family party is tomorrow night here at our house. I am baking her a Winnie the Pooh birthday cake and today we went to Ikea and bought her an easel with a blackboard on one side and a whiteboard on the other. Plus markers, erasers, chalk, etc. I can’t wait!!
