Since my hand sewing is stopped for the moment, I thought I'd work on Civil War blocks. They don't contain any hand sewing...but wow, are they getting complicated and labor intensive.
Here are the few from yesterday and today...I'm going lighter in fabric choices, although the pictures don't show them as light as they are in real life.

**before I get emails....I don't know where you can find any Abe's, sorry. If not for a very sweet friend who shared a couple with me I wouldn't have any either. I will say you can make a copy of the best Abe picture from the book and print it onto the photo paper...which was my option. We are allowed to copy the book for personal use only, so it should be fine to do so.
