Imperial Blooms Update


A beautiful afternoon in Melbourne is much appreciated after some rather chilly days this week. Can't wait for some more warm weather. Just dropping by quickly today to show you some progress in this BOM.

I almost finished Block 2 awhile back, but ran out of threads for the bullion knots, so had to wait for some more to arrive. It's all done now!


I love the stitching on the stem and around the centre.



I have been working on this project quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. I thought I should get a reasonable amount finished before the 2012 Blocks started to arrive!

Here are the ingredients of the last Block


I wonder what the border will be like?

I hope you are having a beautiful day also.

Cheers

Deb

OMG! So beautiful! I'm so tempted to sign up for the 2012 BOM. I'm still kicking myself for not doing so for the 2011 one. Sigh.....

I agree with Dorothy the embellishments on her blocks is what makes them. I love all the different threads and colors, beautiful block.
Good plan at least if you have 1/2 of this years blocks done before 2012 starts arriving you will be in great shape
we just had a few straight days of sunshine it was beautiful days but the rain is back today sad to say.

Wow, that is so gorgeous Deb! It makes me want to do it too. I don't know where the warm spring weather has gone here but it's slow to arrive.

After a workshop with Sue in June and seeing this 20011 BOM I signed up for the 2012 BOM. I can't wait and hope it will turn out as lovely as your blocks.
