So there they are. You can click on any of them to see them bigger. All of the plants are native to the prairies. There's a few more, but I won't bore you (Rudbeckia and Lady's Mantle). Now to work on an arrangement. I'm not sure if I will link them all. I suppose I could work each one from the edge of the quilt, so the start points will be eventually under the binding. hmmm. One thing for sure - I feel really great after each hurdle. I was pretty nervous about all this. Want to see how I manage my anxiety?

I put together this background on Friday. It's based on that photo my mom got me. The lower 2/3 of the piece will be periwinkle-colored French Knots.
|after 2 days of stitching...|
So far I have half of that blue covered with hundreds and hundred of knots. lol It's something small I can take along to the waterparks and work on when my kids play. As I work my way down the piece, the green will show and the knots will be bigger as well as less dense. So far so good! I love the sky and the hills on the other side of the lake. I couched a lot of colored strings onto there. : )
See you tomorrow!
