New blocks

In the last few weeks I connected the blocks for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create. I made a total of 5 blocks and they were not enough to make a rectangle. Today I prepared 3 new blocks. The first one has a piece of my husband’s old shirt, the part with the buttonholes.
In the second one I used a piece of a little girl’s dress with lace. In the top right corner is a cuff from my daughter’s old blouse. I like those little loops!
The last block is long and small. At the left side I used the fabric I removed from block 5.

  1. This reads so lovely a class of Karen. Would my life be a bit calmer I think I would also make it. Very interesting.

  2. By using fabric from clothes or household textile you build in a lot of memories in your work. Clever of you to select interesting parts like buttonholes and loops. Have fun!
