Memory block


I belong to a teensy group of folks that have gathered from Canada and the US. It was decided that we would make blocks that will ultimately be joined into a wall hanging, for one of these friends, whose Mom just completed her earthly journey. The blocks were to be neutral and the favored color for stitching blue with other light touches (if any) of soft pastelles. I decided to just do a play on blue and this is how it came out. I hope that this will help bring warm, loving memories to Lauri as the days go by.

I clicked for a close-up and it's amazing. You do such beautiful work. It's calm and yet it has bling, too.
