I have finished piecing my block for the August TIF challenge and like I have been saying over the last few months this one was a real challenge--again.
This is the second block I made because I really didn't like the first one and when I had finished both of them I asked my husband which one he liked and he chose this one as well.
I do like to get his opinion because even though he knows very little about embroidery and all that stuff he is very honest with his opinions and I know that if he doesn't like something there is usually a very good reason.
All the colours have not photographed true---the 2 red looking pieces in the centre are really more burgundy in colour -for what reason this colour change happened I don't know because all the others look ok..
Embellishing this block will be very interesting. We have a big 4 day craft show here in Canberra starting on Thursday and I am rostered to work on the Embroiderers Guild stand on 2 of those days so I am going to take my CQ block to work on.
Oh and I am also going to have lunch with Sharon B and Annie W on Thursday which I am looking forward to.
Even though we live in the same city this will be our first official meeting.
