Gentle Friends, I finished up the last Block on the second row... "Septemeber".... here's a snap.
... this square is all about education, I was the third in my family to graduate from East Carolina University... so I put the years my Grandmother, my parents and when I graduated... I shifted lots of the floss to Purple and Gold - they are the school colors, the tree looks kind of like a long needle pine tree, which is all over Eastern NC so I left it alone, I changed up the house to a "Carolina Blue" color, which is a reference to UNC where I did Graduate work... so it's sort of an ode to North Carolina and Higher Education! Here are the specific changes I made:
I stitched the Quaker motifs on the left and the Algerian Eyes in CC Cappucino
The Butterfly is stitched using GAST Ye Olde Gold, Old Purple Paint, and Butternut Squash
The Heart on the right is stitched using GAST Berry Cobbler and CC Queen Bee
The House is CC Rain Shower
The Bricks on the house are GAST Pomegranate
CC Tufted Yellow I changed to GAST Shaker White
The numbers and letters are all GAST Ole Purple Paint
Here's a snap of the entire piece as it stands....
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
