Hornbook Bestiary Progress

I've made some more progress on the Hornbook Bestiary.  As I mentioned last time, this block is a very special block.  I'm please to present Nicola's special block.  Let's have a look!

Progress as of 11/16/13

Progress as of 12/23/13

This picture is a pretty good representation of the true colors.  I love how all the blocks look so far.  Let's have a closer look at Nicola's block!

 There she is, "N is for Nightingale and Nicola."  Maybe we should call her Nicola Nightingale.

I reached an exciting point on the sampler where I had to roll out some more fabric for the next row of boxes.  I've found that stitching the whole row of boxes instead of block by block seems to work better for me.  Now I'm ready to stitch "O is for Owl."  He's a chubby little fella.

Thanks for letting me share today.  I hope you enjoyed seeing your special block, Nicola!  I've enjoyed watching everyone's progress and finishes too.

Until next time,
