The Splendid Sampler - Sewing Nut
An appropriately named block!! This is Sunday's block. Not much sewing going on for me lately, but I got this block finished before tomorrow's block comes out. I used fused applique and machine stitched this one. I'm slow enough at this, but I also pull to the back and hand tie all thread tails, use a fray check on the knots, then trim. Just don't like the look of over stitching or back stitching on some things and the auto knot on some machines doesn't hold well, so I take the time to hand tie.
We got a really cute bonus block today and I took it to the embroidery
software to digitize. Hopefully will get it stitched out tomorrow!
