More seams

Over the weekend I got a bit more done on the latest block of the courtship series...

This one is straight stitches and beads (or French knots).

Straight stitches - with lazy daisies for the small leaves.

Today the quote is from Ernest Hemingway....

Before you act, listen.
Before you react, think.
Before you spend, earn.
Before you criticize, wait.
Before you pray, forgive.
Before you quit, try.


  1. Lovely stitches Mary Anne! I love how very simple stitches combine to give such a pretty, sophisticated look... beautiful! Christine x

  2. Wow, Mary Anne! Love all your block details! I have a tiny project I saturated a little earlier in the year which I might be able to use some of them on! Now I just need to find my cottons!

    Your recipes look delicious!
