Hi there! Sorry it's been so long since my last post. MisterStitches and I have been on a long car trip. I'll tell you more about the trip later. The really interesting news is the sewing I got done along the way! Driving down to Los Angeles and San Diego
involves a lot of very straight driving
along Highway 5. Conditions which
are ideal for me to sew in the car.
I told you previously about preparing all these blocks for embroidery. Now I will show you the progress I made on the blocks.
Another one, and its close-up below.
And then I realized I was running into a problem. I should have thought about how much green thread it was going to take to do all the greenery on these blocks. Silly me!
So now my "mostly-finished" blocks look like the ones below, with flowers, but no greenery.
In this one the flowers are in the shape of a heart, and I'm thinking that shape will show up better once I get the green stems and leaves added.
But I will soon have more green thread, now that I'm back home and can get to a fabric shop!
