I MUST Show you...

...THIS SBS block!

G-5 Mariner's Compass

I was very afraid of it... and thought I will never succeeded with it...
but miracles happen;)
After
some hours... much of pressing... most tiny paperpieces... bucketful of patience and concentration
VOILA!!! There it is!
...I was ready for adding many delighted comments on my SBS journal;)))

My eyes are so sore and blurred like that photo because of those tiny cross-stitches,
but I will do it - till the end.
One big problem is that the evenings are so dark and I'm lack of a good lighting - I mean REALLY good...
But I'm over the half way;)
So better use the daylight
as well as possible
and leave the computer...
... I just wanted to show you that compass...

Until next time;)

Oh boy, your compass looks very, very nice. I know this block, but I never had the courage to sew it.
You really did very, vey, very well.

It is a very pretty block and the fabrics you picked have made it shine. Having good light is important. I have different Ott lights I use that have helped me very much.

Your compass is amazing!! Very beautiful. I use an Ott light for dark evenings and it does help a lot.
