And the new block is started! Just barely. First I did this embellishment on the lace to the left of the picture of Suztat's mom. I don't know if these will click to enlarge or not. I did tell it large, so we'll see.
Sadly, it didn't turn out exactly as I planned. The lace didn't cooperate the way I hoped it would. I'll have to try the butterflies on a regular seam in another block sometime. It isn't bad, just not what I thought it would be.
Then I started this embellishment, inspired by the pink flowering trees down the street from me. There will be many pink French knots, hopefully next week!
This is on top of the linen hanky corner.
I need a week-long retreat with all my stitching stuff, and no phone or computer, and a river flowing by somewhere and temps of about 78 and low humidity - in short, I need a week in paradise.
