Block 10 !!!!!!!!!

Look, I've been communing with needle and thread!! Will wonders never cease! ;0)
block 10
This is the block just below the moon, and where I'm really starting to work with the moonlight. I'm getting there!

Here's a couple of closeups of two of my favorite seams on this block. The base stitch for this seam treatment is the herringbone stitch.

I added lazy daisy stitches and a couple straight stitches, too.

Here is a seam treatment done with a cretan stitch as the base stitch.

I added some long and short straight stitches to round it out.

I'm just doing a short post today, as we have work to do around the old homestead.

Take care, ladies, and talk to you soon!

And a LOT to your house! It's looking great.
