Bleeding Heart

I finished the tenth small block for "Time Began in a Garden" a couple of weeks ago, and forgot to post a picture. It is one of my favorites for this project.
. . . .
This weekend's big project was choosing wools, tracing designs, bonding to black flannel, drawing the stems, and writing the words for the last two small blocks (winter berries and holly) and also the big central block. Last night I went through my floss and found I have all but five of the colors I'll need to finish the project, so I snipped samples of the colors I need and tomorrow will try to get out to the shop to buy them. These three blocks are the stitchery that I'll be taking with me on my trip to Greece. I have no idea how much time I'll have available for stitching, but I mean to be prepared!
. . . .
Here is a picture of what the finished project will look like. I hope.

Really neat. It is going to be very nice when completed. I like the bleeding heart block. I don't think I have ever seen one before, block that is not bleeding heart.

I can't imagine you'll have much time for stitching what with all the fun and frolic... but, you can't say that you weren't prepared! I can't imagine anything sadder than a quilter sitting idle with not a thing to do, either.

What an undertaking that project is! The finished results will be incredible. I think the bleeding heart block is exquisite.

I always love the pics you post on this quilt. It's so beautiful! I like all the blocks, can't even begin to pick a favorite. =)
