I apologize in advance for the horrendous cropping of the pictures and diagrams - for reasons known only unto the computer, cropping is cancelled for today. Argh!! Now, on to the beginnings of Block Six of the Courtship Series...
This one was done with straight stitches, a few little cross stitches, and then I added French knots and some beads.
The heart within a heart was all done with cross stitches. You could remove the middle heart and use flowers instead (silk ribbon would be lovely!).
Since I started the courtship series, I've been wrestling with ideas of how to finish the blocks off and I have a few ideas floating about in my brain - one of which I would like to tackle, but not at all sure it will work. Came across this quote this morning and perhaps it's telling me something??? It's from Mandy Hale..."You don't always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens"
