Sue's Imperial Blooms and ...

No, that block isn't really as big as it looks.  Just a closeup to show the wonderful textures that Sue Spargo includes in her kits.  Had a tiny piece of lime green velvet left, so added it to the inner circle to finish that off.  Just need to add a few more embellishment stitches.  I realized I only have one more block to finish and then the borders, so I think I will go back and add additional embellishment stitches to the previous blocks since I like working on increasing my skill with all the possible stitches without going back to read the tips and instructions, plus I know now it helps to have the correct needle size.  I knew that, but didn't think it made that big of difference, but it does when you are using specialty threads.
Of course, wildlife, big horn sheep as I'm looking at them from upstairs in my fabric room.
A profile of Bailey as I try to snap a pic of a baby big horn just outside the storeroom window downstairs.

As many pictures I take and have taken in the past, I don't have one picture from the trip when Jim and I moved up here so many years ago from Texas. We would have been on day four of the trip, almost here.  One more day to go, sure of all of us, the five cats would be the most relieved.
