Embroider, Embellish, Create update 1

I added the last block to my cloth and sewed extra strips around it. Now it’s easy to put it in my hoop. My husband was holding it for me so I could take a photo. 
The size is 52 x 70 cm or 20 x 28 inch.
Then I started to embroider the seams at the edge of block 2. This is a freestyle buttonhole double chain with perle 5.
Cross stitches and straight stitches with perle 12.
Colonial knots with perle 5.
Buttonhole stitches with perle 8. 
 Buttonhole lace at the corner, I used the same perle 8.
The last one is wheatear stitch with perle 8.
Take a closer look at my cloth here.

  4. It's so LARGE! All the stitches are standing out; almost like Mountmellick or other textured embroidery. The green striped border sets off the centre beautifully.
