This is Block #43
Roses by Jan Patek :)
I posted this just before I went
into the hospital for the surgery
on my brain.
I had hydrocephalus or "water on the brain".
It's really not water but my body was producing
way too much spinal fluid that surrounds the
brain and spine and that fluid was causing
pressure on my brain. My primary care
physician diagnosed it because my "gait" was
off when I walked. Quite often it is caused
by a stroke but I hadn't had a stroke so
we're not sure what caused it.
Anyway, by the time I did this block I could
still needleturn the large flower, stems and
larger leaves but the small leaves and the
buds just were't possible. So........
deadlines being what they are, I cut the buds
and small leaves to size and fastened them
to the block with a dot of glue. I was pretty sure
some of you would notice the raw edges but
you can only do what you can do.
Today I thought I would show you how the
block turned out after my brain and fingers
were communicating again. I got some embroidery
floss and did a buttonhole stitch around the
raw edges and I really like the added texture.
So now lets go see what the others have done
with Robin's block.
