Well, I got to work on my block today. Yea! So far I am not liking the contrast of the threads I used. I also feel that I could use some lighter colors of wool for some of the applique. But, so far so good, all of the background pieces are sewed down to the muslin. It has been a little hard for me to handle, maybe I need to use a hoop to help me hold it. Let me know if there are any tips for how to handle the bulk of the block while doing the embroidery. It has been years since I have done this type of stitching. On my next block I might do the applique & embroidery first and then sew the pieces to the foundation.
A New Year!
