Well I have been busy hand stitching the next block of Scandinavian Rose (designed by Rosalie Quinlan and bought last year from The Fat Quarters). There are 14 blocks altogether, and came in 6 packs. My plan is to stitch a pack per month, so hopefully will have this finished by the end of March 2015. The design is screen printed onto handkerchief linen and I've used weaveline for the stabiliser on the back (also bought from The Fat Quarters). I've used a combination of plain embroidery thread (Cosmo shade 346) and a beautiful hand dyed thread by Cottage Garden Threads (shade 1007 "Hugs and Kisses")...
... and block 2 is now completed - well, the stitchery part is anyway - I just need to collect together a selection of red/white fabrics for the pieced blocks to sew around the stitchery designs. I've got some in my stash already, but maybe a shopping trip can be arranged while I'm on holiday at the end of the month to get one or two more!
