All Year Square

Last summer, my friends Judy, Chris, and I traveled to Indiana to take the Toy Box Etui with Betsy Morgan. I'm still working on my toy box, but I recently finished another one of Betsy's projects - the All Year Square.



The piece is smaller than I initially realized - each side is about two inches square. Much of the stitching is over one. For some reason I was severely counting challenged when I was stitching this piece, but I got it done and yesterday I had time to finish it!

Each side is a different season:

Fall:


Winter:



Spring:



Summer:



Here's the top! As you can see, there is a place to slide in your scissors on one of the sides. And a coordinating scissors fob for the scissors!



Looking forward to stitching more of Betsy Morgan's pieces. Need to get back to my toy box!

What a great finish! You must be thrilled, it' perfect.

Our stashes could be twins--I have the toy box to do as well.

I just love your All Year Square, Cathy! What a wonderful treat to have sitting beside your stitching chair…I could never have finished a 1x1, so I give you a ton of kudos! It's beautiful :)

beautiful finish and lovely piece by Betsy. I bet you will love the Toy Boy Etui - a couple of friends in my EGA chapter did that class last year. Hope your R&R is fun. Mel
