These are the pics for my headboard so far. I hope to have it finished by the end of this year.

In answer to questions about my headboard, I do not have one currently. I will actually make the blocks into a wall-hanging, 4 blocks wide and 2 blocks tall. I will make the backing in a solid color, and the whole thing will hang from a shelf I have above my bed. I still have to make 4 more blocks. Green (under the sea), yellow (no theme yet), peach (no theme yet), and silver and gray ( no theme yet). I am trying to make each block speak about my life and loves. The pink one is about the fact that I am a girl, and really love frilly things. The cream and gold one is about my love of quiet and calm. The blue is about my love of stitching. The purple one, which isn't shown yet, is about my love of gardens and tea parties. I will post it as soon as I finish it. I don't know how to make my pics get large. I'll have to check with a friend who does a lot of pics. If there is something you especially want to see, let me know and I will make a close up to post.

You know, that old saying is so true. The best laid plans often go awry. It has been raining and windy both yesterday and today, so I haven't taken pictures yet. If I take them without natural light, they are very hard to see, very dark. I was planning to update the blocks for my headboard of my bed, the BCQC pieces I'm working on, the CTC stuff, and some Crewel work I have been enjoying lately. I hope the sun comes out soon. I have lots to catch up on. Here's hopeing 'tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya' tomorrow' will be a better day.
