Wishing on a star

This little piece was so much fun to embroider, it's my grandsons making a wish on the first star.

I finished all the detail on the earth, now I will put the backing on and quilt the rest of it. I will quilt each block as I go, I'm not quite sure how I will attach the next blocks maybe embroidery stitches with beads.

Just had to share one more picture with you (same artist), he loves dinosaurs, I don't think I've ever saw a cuter one.

Tonight I will start on the next block on my earth quilt, there's a full moon tonight and they call it the "pink"moon due to all the flowering trees and shrubs. We have a very old gnarly apple tree in our yard full of blossoms, I don't know how it still is standing because most of the inside is hollow. I think that will also be a block.
