These are a few of the embroidered snowflake blocks for Scandinavian Christmas (pattern by Lynette Anderson Designs). I thought it would be easier to work with a larger piece of linen rather than cut smaller squares. I'm using "Sticky Fabri-Solvy" - this is a dissolvable stabiliser that the snowflake design has been photocopied onto. The backing paper is removed, and the stabilizer is pressed into place. Once all the embroidery has been completed, this piece of linen will be rinsed in warm water, and the stabiliser simply dissolves. When it's dry, the individual squares can be cut to size. The embroidered snowflake blocks have been trimmed to size and are ready to be machine pieced together with the churn dash blocks that I'd made last weekend. I might even get the first complete block finished!
