Here's the 5th block of Wish You Well - it's the 2020 I Stitch Club design, which is a mystery block of the month, designed by the Australian designer Gail Pan Designs and is available from her website as a PDF download. This combines a mixture of hand embroidery and applique (you can use whatever method of applique you prefer). I've used a GORGEOUS selection of fabrics for this project, that are from the Super Bloom collection by Edyta Sitar, which were purchased from Cross Patch an online shop based in Wales here in the UK...
...a selection of embroidery threads have been used for the hand embroidery - Cosmo, DMC and Valdani, in an assortment of colours, both plain and variegated colours. Gail uses a mix of vintage lace and doilies as trimmings, and I've added a piece of vintage lace to mine...
...these circles have been made using Karen Kay Buckley perfect circles, and have been hand stitched in place using a very fine thread. I've made a few circles with some broderie anglais fabric to use for this project (I stitched one on blocks 2 and 4). This fabric is incredibly old and was a sample piece I'd bought when I was making my daughter her Christening gown back in 1992.
