emerald star almost done

Almost finished! I figure a couple more hours of stitching today and I'll have this cross stitched quilt block completed.  I'm not sure if I have enough of one of the colors to finish it, though. *grr* I really don't want to wander out in the new snow to get it. Might just wait until I go to pick up the girl from school and swing through and grab it then. The benefit of waiting also means that I won't be tempted to pick up anything else because I have got to finish up a few things before I go starting anything else. 

Last year I hand dyed a few hanks of six strand cotton embroidery thread with Easter egg tablets. Really loved the results, but I didn't have a project in mind for them at the time. So I tucked them away, and in sorting out the sewing room after my boy went back to school, I found them and started playing around with a few embroidered petals if for nothing else but to stitch. 


I appreciate your comments!
