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.

Thanks for stopping by and see you next week!
