This is my favorite kind of morning. Cool, foggy, and full of secrets.
Scientifically, I know that the density of the fog makes the birdsong muffled, but I like the idea that the morning has secrets for me to discover.
Splendid Sampler block #45 is called Sewing Nut and is designed by Frances Newcombe.
It's that cutesy style like the embroidery of block #44, kind of a child-like Japanese style. I admire the design talent, but it is not my favorite to execute.
Something that takes this long to complete should be more pleasing to my personal aesthetic. You can see I exchanged the applique tree and leaves in favor of a quick outline stitch.
Anyway, I am taking pleasure in completing each block and learning new techniques.
