Keeping it simple-er!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) clocks that tick
(2) red staplers
(3) tv remotes

Still designing my bee's anniversary swap blocks - I wasn't keeping it simple enough!

After stitching around those letters in the 10th Street Cafe block I realized I didn't want to do that 3 more times!  Even after simplifying it and just putting a "10" on the tray, I knew I could do better.

So I found some clipart and decided how to combine it with the number 10...

Getting there...

I'm glad I took a photo of it first though... that "1" looks like the number seven!

Not bad, eh?  I like it!  Why didn't I arrive here sooner??

The ones I didn't stitch down yet will be replaced with this figure.  This is so super simple, and it's all one piece!

That's it for now, I have a dental appointment this morning, lucky me.  Enjoy your day, sew forth and sew on til later!


  1. I really like this one. Great idea!

  2. You have come up with such terrific ideas for this 10th anniversary! I love 'em all. How many blocks are you making in total? A red stapler??? I NEED one.

  3. Like what you are doing, and I might switch to some clip art to the embroidery is taken up sometime.

  4. That looks so FUN. I love your final take on it.
