Last Wednesday my cage was rattled by a post from Tanya about the"Partnership Block" for next years Tokyo Dome quilt show. After taking notes from Queenie's post, I had let the whole thing go completely out of my mind. (My mind being over-worked with choir stuff and scouting stuff and school stuff and worrying about who could take care of my menagerie while I travel)
Ooops, the deadline for submitting the blocks is the end of July so I had better not wait any longer because I will be travelling most of that month and next week is scout camp. If I move the ideas any farther out of my mind, it may never get done ... or I will be rushing to meet the deadline.
So, the theme being "tree of life" I decided to put my Ohio Cardinal into the tree. I was going to put feet on the bird but in the end, the tree needed another leaf for balance at the place where the feet would have been. I put in the last stitches before going to bed after a very long day on Sunday. Tomorrow it can go into the post and I can scratch that item out of my cluttered brain. And I guess it would be a good idea to remove the basting thread from the last leaf now that I see the end dangling.
So ... off to find an envelope and a postcard to enclose.
