Splendid Sampler II - Block #3
I've been working on Block #3 by Helen Stubbings. Part of the fun is picking out the fabric. This is one of my favorite things to do when I'm starting a project. Imaging what it will look like and playing with the different combinations. My husband teases me about petting my fabric...you get it right?!
His favorite quote of mine is: "I just want to stay at home and play with my fabrics!" What more could you want?!
Meanwhile, here is Block #3. This one had both applique and embroidery. I will admit that I am a bit rusty on my embroidery but I pulled out my case full of thread and stitched away. I googled how to do both the backstitch and the running stitch and that was super helpful. It's like riding a bike, once you get going, it all comes back to you. I'm sure there will be more embroidery so I will get to "ride my bike" again.
