Spot The Differences...

Brynwood Needleworks - Everlasting Bird Block Box 2
 
I took it easy yesterday. I had a few things to accomplish in the morning, and rode in the car with Handsome while he ran his errands. I was bushed when we got home, so I iced my knee again and fell asleep. I'm listening to my body and resting when I need to.
 
Brynwood Needleworks - Everlasting Bird Block Box 2

I did start and complete another block from the "Everlasting" project. If you're new, these blocks were a series from Primitive Gatherings Wool Box subscription over a twelve month period. There are twenty four blocks total, designed by Lisa Bongean. They'll eventually be available to the public, but not right now.

As always, I add my own personal touches, placing the pattern cover next to my completed blocks so you can spot the differences. I think my modifications will be readily apparent on this one. Don't you?

More embroidery tomorrow. More resting tomorrow...and a little sitting at my machine for some long overdue gifts owed some of my blog friends. 

Thank you to everyone who left a beautiful, caring message for me on yesterday's post. I'll answer each one individually on the "reply" feature to your comment, so you can go back to see how grateful I am for your notes. Big hugs.

  1. Your changes & added stitches look great.
    Don't overdo it!
    I am leaving today to go "puppysit" at my niece & nephews for the weekend while they go to Door County to open their camper for the season. Eeep!

    1. Hi Marilyn:
      Thanks, hon. No worries. I'm spending lots of time with my leg up, and on ice.
      Squeee! It sounds like you'll have a great time. I'm sure your niece and nephews are very appreciative. (I hope they bring back a little souvenir for you.)
      Big Hugs,
      xoxo

  2. I think this project is perfect for you right now - something that doesn't require a whole lot of physical effort but yet soothing to the soul. What do people do, I wonder, who don't have needlework to fill their hours. Take care of you!

    1. Hi Maggie:
      I'm really enjoying this. I have something pretty to show for my days spent sitting. I've often wondered the same thing. I hear there are actually people who don't have a crafty pursuit. I can't even imagine!
      I'm taking it easy. Thanks again for your note.
      Big Hugs,
      xoxo

  3. This is a very nice project!
    I wish I could sew like you do.
    At the moment I am making little felt rabbits.
    I wish you a good weekend.
