The final 2 stitchery blocks of United Stitches by Rosalie Dekker Designs arrived in the post from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia and I couldn't wait to get started stitching them. These designs have been pre-printed onto handkerchief linen, so just needed some interfacing to be fused on the back (my favourite is weaveline, available from Patchwork Chicks and The Fat Quarters, both shops have excellent websites) and they were ready to go! I always use a wooden embroidery hoop to keep the linen taught. And here are the finished blocks. These were stitched very simply with Cosmo embroidery threads, using back stitch, chain stitch and satin stitch. Now I just need to stitch the final row into place along with the 2 borders, which I'm planning to do at the weekend.
