I've been merrily getting myself in and out of jams with the embellishing of this block. That's what happens when you decide as you go along what you are going to do!
The great Carole Samples draws out her blocks and stitching meticulously before she threads a single needle...actually, the word meticulous doesn't begin to cover it when it comes to Carole's work. But I just can't see how that would be possible, at least for me.
I am very much aware of trying to define my design with each element that gets added with the embellishments here. But meanwhile this is just a heck of a lot of fun.
