A little bit more

Another bit of work completed on my latest block...

Blanket stitch (dark green); fly stitch (blue); lazy daisies (light green); cast on stitch or you could use bullions (pink); and either beads or French knots.

I think I showed you the base part of the vine that is now complete.  I used one of Sharon Boggon's wonderful stencils to draw out the vine and then I completed it with some heart-shaped beads.  The leaves were done using fly stitch and lazy daisies. 

If you'd like to check out Sharon's stencils, go HERE.   I have no affiliation, but I highly recommend them!


Today your quote is from Maya Angelou..."You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them"
