Blocks 1-4

Block 1 was easy and went fast….then Block 2 presented a challenge. It uses the Queen stitch. A stitch I haven’t done before. It took some reverse stitching to get the rhythm and placement correct. I’m glad it was a small block. I was anxious to get to Block 3.

Block 3 took several days to complete. It wasn’t a difficult pattern but it required two needles, a technique I don’t do well with. I thought about doing all of the diagonal stitches and then the tent….that didn’t work because the small tent, which I was doing with a Kreinik #4 braid, used dirty holes and required tucking under the existing stitching. So I used two needles and it was soooo slow going. I thought I would never get done. It still surprises me to see how different floss looks depending on the direction of the stitch.

Block 4 is fun and I should finish it tomorrow. I’m choosing threads as I go and I hope I can get the value balance correct. This will be a fun project. Each Block is like a small project.
