What a sewing marathon I enjoyed this week-end!
I had to get this block done, as there was a deadline, and my husband and I are leaving for another adventure in Mexico on Wednesday. I will be off the radar for a week. I do plan on taking some stitching down there...the Black Hole from the Fan Quilt. That should be fun.
Anyway, here is Judy's block, with some details.
I embroidered over the woven brocade flower with a teeny tiny chain stitch. Those leaves are out of my Japanese ribbon embroidery book.
And as always, I love to use Vicki Day's silk ribbon...those bugles within the chain stitch are inspired by the peerless Pamela Kellogg, of Kitty and Me Designs. I think of this as a signature stitch of hers.
While doing all this stitching, I had the delightful company of my sister Mary, who flew up from San Diego. We did take time away from the sewing room to watch "Borat", and laughed ourselves silly. What a masterpiece of political incorrectness that film is! We loved it.
High Five...Great Success!
I love my Seester!!!
