I've been working on some embroidery these days. Small tiny stitches are needed & only one strand of floss to stitch with. This is a first for me, for something this delicate. Well, I guess the Alex Anderson's Noah's Ark is right up there too. The blocks finish at 4", the same size of hoop I'm using! It will be a small hanging that will have sashing between the blocks & a toy border around it, finishing at 22" x 22".
So cute the blocks are & they remind me of the Campbell soup kids. Those polka dots were fun.
The stitch work is so small & compact, great to take to appointments while you wait. I'm onto my 3rd out of 9 blocks now.
Doesn't she look like on of those Campbell soup kids? Two other girlfriends are doing this project too. Bev & Lynn are at different stages & both of them do better embroidery than me. As I've heard, "Theory will inform, but practice convinces." This is a bit of a fun challenge for me.
