Jeannine sent along pictures of her third-ever embroidery projects… she sent these a while ago, so by now, she must be on her hundredth-ever projects!! (Maybe?) These are quilt blocks of the month, and I think they’re pretty darned cute – not to mention really well done!
One reason I like these types of hand embroidery projects is because they are filled with a variety of stitches, and you have pretty much an unlimited choice of colors. I think these types of blocks are excellent for beginners, and are a great way to make something that can be treasured by family or friends for a long time to come.
Here are her blocks:
I love the seed stitching in the flowers, and the variety of leaves, don’t you?
Again, the seed stitching is great for filling! I can’t decide what I like best on this one – I think I like the sand!
It’s easy to pick a favorite aspect of this block – I love the turkey’s feathers!
Good job, Jeannine! These are great – what a lot of fun! And it’s wonderful to be able to see what others are doing out there in the embroidery world… seeing other people’s work is a great way to get inspired!
If you’ve been working on something lately and want to send along a progress report, I’d love to see your current project. Contact me, and I’ll e-mail you back, so you can send an attachment!
I hope everyone’s having a great week – I, personally, am work-swamped. But this, too, shall pass!
