No blocks again....

Hello! Well, it is Friday again and that means I should really be posting about my Farm Girl Friday blocks..... however, I have had a really busy week with visitors here and then taking them home again, which involved a lot of driving so, I haven't had much time to sit and sew. I now need to catch up with weeks nine, ten and eleven. Luckily, I have a quiet weekend ahead and I am hoping to catch up with all sorts of stitching projects then.


In the odd moment here and there that I have had to sew this week, I finished off my background blocks for Kathy Shaw's ICQC 107 Class. There are two backgrounds and the embroidered details on them are the backdrop for some beautiful silk ribbon embroidery flowers.


I already like how the backgrounds look and, I can't wait now to get started on the flowers. Kathy's brilliant classes are packed full of so much wonderful information and I am learning such a lot from them. I am looking forward to learning how to embroider some different silk ribbon flowers.

Have a happy weekend!

  2. I love that tree! The little fence behind it is fun too; it looks really old and gnarled, but what a lot of stem stitch to achieve the texture!
