I am hoping to get some more blocks completed this week too. I would love to get caught up before June's blocks are released!!
There is nothing I like more than to join in a sew-a-long and last week a lovely sew-a-long s started in a Facebook group I follow. It is being run by a lovely lady whose acquaintance I made through taking part in the Splendid Sampler. She is very talented and made the most beautiful Splendid Sampler blocks and now she is about to have her first book published called 'Small Wonders'. Her name is Serena Boffa Soda and you can follow her Facebook page at La Casetta Nel Bosco.
In anticipation of the release of her new book, she is running the sew-a-long to teach some basic embroidery stitches. Although I am familiar with the basic stitches, I loved the little design that Serena has drawn for this sew-a-long and I couldn't resist joining in!
I transferred the pattern to some prepared fabric and stitched the first stitch which is the blanket stitch. Isn't it cute? I'm looking forward to the next stitch being released on Wednesday of this week.
Thank you for visiting! xx
