Gradually adding a few stitches....


After being side-tracked a couple of times by other projects such as, miniature crochet and pretty embroidered blocks, I have returned to stitching block two of the 'Mrs Beasley's Sampler Quilt' designed by Leanne Beasley and being published over four issues of her Vignette magazine.


I am getting nearer to finishing it and hopefully this weekend will manage to put the last touches to it.


I don't think that some of the letters being stitched in a different colour of thread is too noticeable. Looking forward now to the next issue of Vignette and the next block!


Thank you very much for visiting me and have a wonderful weekend!!!
