Well, guess it's been awhile. Sorry, 'bout that. It's been a bad summer for me, my IBS has been kicking my butt big time and I just seem to get further behind all the time. Days seem to turn into weeks without me recognizing them. I have been getting around to my usual blogs but actually getting up enough energy to post on my own hasn't happened much this summer. I'm now on some medication that should help so hopefully I can get back on track.
In more pleasant news, here's block 13!!
I like the way this block came out... I haven't looked at in a week and I'm rather pleasantly surprised.
Here are a couple of closeups of some of the nicer seam treatments:
On the top right is a mirrored buttonhole stitch done in #8 perle cotton and then some Caron Watercolours variegated pima cotton. Mirrored buttonhole stitch is a great stitch... it gives such a nice little swoosh at the bottom between the up and down parts!
Here's a really nice one... I like it a lot!
On the left is a cretan stitch done in the same #8 perle cotton and variegated pima cotton and on the right is herringbone stitch (with extras). I'm really keeping my palette limited on these last few blocks. I really want them to blend together.
Back soon with more... thanks for hanging in there with me, ladies! Love ya's!
