More Blues and Jewels

I got quite a bit done in my last few days of freedom.  Not only was I teaching at Jackman's but I got some of my own sewing done as well.  Barn Sampler is done except for the outer applique panels.  Then, of course, the actual quilting.  I've since done a button hole stitch in medium blue around all of the applique over the barn.
The last block for the Splendid Sampler 2 for Jackman's.  The presentation is complete as well.  That was a fun day!  I do love talking to people about embroidery!  I didn't realize I could keep these when I was done.  Off to the extra block pile, they go!
February's crazy bird block is finished.  I've got mixed feelings about it.  I always feel like a button collage is a cop out when I can't think of anything else to do in a space.  I've got plenty of time to do something different if the mood hits me, I guess.  Sunday, I'll be talking with our local CQ group about bird nest options and then I'm back at Jackman's on Monday night to teach part 2 of the CQ class.  Fun, fun and more fun.
I got caught up on Stars in Her Crown.  I forget which is which.  The more I read about Queen Victoria, the less I like her.  I started watching PBS's Victoria to get a different view of her but it all seams fairly glossed over in that first season. 
I struggled to find different shades of red, so I settled for some orange and red.
The center pinks needed more contrast but it's passable.  I think there are 2 more and I'm running out of colors.  I might do a light purple?  Maybe a bright orange.  We'll see what I've got.
Next up, prom season and then straight into the quilt show... I'll come up for breath sometime in June.
