My February block is not quite finished. There is one more major area to stitch, and a couple that I will do after blocks are together. I also still have the beading to go. 3 more days!
Here are some new parts this week. I already had an undulating chain stitch, so I experimented with another idea from Carole Samples' book, p. 129. Getting those circles round and the chains in the outer part even were a little too challenging!
I also added this seam, inspired by a seam in Carole's book, p. 132. This one is Fly Stitch with straight stitch and French knots.
The whole block together, and you can see the chain stitch wavy seam with buttonhole, and the detached chain stitches on the chevron seam.
I uploaded so you can click on my pictures and be able to enlarge them.
