September's block is navy blue and will have a victorian feel to it. I'm not sure who will be stitching that victorian feel but maybe I can pull someone in off the street to do it. It seems that handwork has severely dropped down on my list of personal activities. The pendulum needs to swing back into its favor. I have been seriously working on some obligated quilts (machine work) that are now under control (drop by my blog for photos) so expect to return to the slower handwork.
My plans are to embroider the seams in various whites & do a pretty button cluster or two. I thought about doing a pistil "flower" around the individual big buttons but now am second guessing myself. Maybe this afternoon.
Edited--here's my Pistil stitch--I like this very much and can see it again on future blocks.
Tied Herringbone with a Pistil stitch in the V
I used perle cotton and a strand of crewel yarn (for the tie and pistil)
