I have sewn my blocks together and put a border on them. I enjoy Alida's block of months because she gives things to challenge us. Some of the patterns are difficult but I make myself finish them so that I can receive the next month block. I work better under pressure!!

I had a "mistake" piece left over from making a block for June. So I used it in this months block. I didn't want it to be thrown away. I changed the color arrangement just a bit so that it would look like a sun shining. Well, anyway I had fun with it. The top picture shows the piece from June and the other picture is my finished block 2 for November.

When I saw the block that June made it inspired me to try something. She showed how she used freezer paper to trace her lines for the stars. So I did that and when I was done with the embroidery I used the freezer paper to cut out some fabric stars and applique them a bit cattywampus over the embroidery. Raw edge applique. I'm not too happy with the second star covering the embroidery lines a little too much. Maybe its an eclipse?? (wink)
