I have been faithfully stitching along each month with Barbara Brackman’s Hospital Sketches (Civil WarBlog). However, I have not been keeping up with my postings. I must admit it is easier to simply post a photo and quick blurb on the Facebook group (here), but when it comes to posting on my Blog I like to be more descriptive and that takes time I just don’t seem to have this summer.
I know I am preaching to the choir. Many of us are in the same boat this year and I for one am happy that we are all still afloat!
My last Hospital Sketches post was the Coxcomb and Current block in May (here). I think that one was my favorite, but I’ve made 3 more since then. They have all be a joy to make. I adore my fabric choices – right up my color alley!
The Pineapple was block #5. I added the leaf shapes in the center as I needed to add some purple somehow for balance.
I was happy to see that the Laurel Leaf was the next block since it is so simple and July is so hectic.
The Tennessee Rose was my latest finish. I do love how bright and perky this one is.
Only two more to go. Still trying to decide if I will finish this in my ever popular “potholder” method. What do you think?
Do visit the Facebook group for some wonderful renditions of these blocks. There is so much variety. It makes me want to make another one – maybe half size??
