Today I actually got to stay home all day (other than for going for a walk) and I was able to make eight blocks for the Embroider, Embellish, Create class. Yippee for me!! Not only am I making blocks to stitch on but I'm reducing my stash at the same time. Win/Win I would say!
Above is the first block.
Karen taught us how to make prairie points - so elegant and so easy to do. This block has an already embroidered piece which came from a small tablecloth (probably card table size) that my maternal grandmother embroidered in the late 50's or early 60's. There's a small piece of dupioni silk, which I'll be using a lot in this (it's my favourite fabric). There's also a piece of a hankie and a piece from a table runner I had stashed away.
Over the next few days I'll show a few of the other blocks I've created. Now I can start to embroider -all in white, so I'd better not be drinking my coffee anywhere near my work!! That's going to be HARD!!!
