I finished 2 more blocks for Karen’s class Embroider, Embellish, Create.
This is block 7. In the top
right corner is a cuff from my daughter’s old blouse, for now it’s only appliquéd
to the block. I already wrote about the first details here.
At the left side I made
an Assisi flower garden of French knots.
The lace next to it has a
whipped chain stitch with cotton a broder.
There was a small space
left on my cloth and first I wanted to make a small pocket. Then I found the pleated
fabric, perfect for this. I appliquéd a small circle and decorated it with
French knots. The size of block 9 is 1½ x 8 inch or 3½ x 20 cm.
My unfinished cloth. Now
I only have to finish block 8 for the bottom right corner.
My blocks are only
attached with tacking stitches, so there are a lot of new seams to embroider!
