Block 1

Here is my first pieced block--well I should say tacked block for the EEC class with Karen.The block is 12" x 12" and I am now about to work on the seam embroidery.
As you can see I have added my Rouleau loops and I like the way this block is developing.





and wouldn't you just believe it--whenever I work with white fabric I inevitably prick my finger and get blood all over everything.
Luckily I hadn't stitched it down so I just cut another piece and replaced it -saved me trying to clean it with my own saliva,
When I was doing dressmaking I don't know how many wedding dresses I added unwanted colour on to-but I always managed to get it off.




Now I am heading off to do lots of French Knots and other wonderful stitches to add to it.

I love it - white on white and just a touch of softly coloured florals and ginghams!!
Wish I was doing this class with you....

It's looking very good already Doreen. I'm terrified of working with white - I don't bleed on it, I just make it filthy!

A lovely starting point Doreen.

Your all white block looks so pretty and fresh. I have trouble wearing all white let alone trying to work with it! Every time I wear something white it just seems to act as a magnet for dirt.

Aha - that explains why you do such beautiful needlework!!! Didn't know you had been a dressmaker and doing wedding dresses - yikes! NOT something I would ever tackle.
